About the Project
The Gridline Apartments will consist of two buildings — a north and west building. The North Building will be 161,601 s.f. with 2,850 s.f. of common amenity space and 129 units. Community amenities will include a fitness room, rooftop club room, and a roof deck with incredible skyline views, vegetated roof areas, custom BBQ table, and outdoor fire tables. The North Building also offers multiple bike storage rooms, a secured parcel room, a tranquil courtyard, and roughly 1,256 s.f. of co-working space to accommodate the teleworking lifestyles. The West Building (31,261 s.f., 49 units) will include two secured bike storage rooms, secured parcel room, and a roof deck with sweeping view, BBQ, fire table and vegetated roof areas.
Scheduled completion date is Q4 2023
The North Building is progressing nicely, as we start framing the roof and the rest of the framing should wrap up early to mid-February! Metal framing at the concrete levels is almost finished and exterior framing is taking place this month to help further close in the building.
Over at the West Building, we are working towards getting the building dried and the dryout process underway. All MEP work on the roof is in progress and the frame is almost fully complete! We have installed all the windows on the north façade and a handful of windows on the south while we wait for the accent framing to finish.
Planned Street Interruptions
The job site had its last big delivery so moving forward, there will be less congestion on the Harvard side related to deliveries. However, minor deliveries will still occur and the public exiting the QFC parking lot should be aware of minor delays they might encounter. One important note: shoppers at QFC should be aware when we have deliveries as flaggers may need to stop them to effectively direct traffic. Also, it is important to not enter a ticket when leaving the QFC parking lot if the gate is up and another car is ahead. The gate lets one car through per opening and this has caused individuals to get stuck.
We will be taking down the west tower crane on Saturday, January 27th which will mean a full closure of Union Street between Harvard and Boylston.
