Arquitectonica has released the plans for Pierce Boston—its first building in Boston—a luxury residential condominium in Boston’s Fenway neighborhood. With the recent large-scale real estate boom, the Fenway area is undergoing a massive transformation, with Pierce Boston to become the first building of its caliber in the neighborhood.

In an effort to balance new luxury with the existing iconic fabric of the area, the building is designed in simplicity with contemporary materials, so as to modernize the building against its context. Glass and metal will panel the façade, with the metal paneling patterned down to the scale and texture of a more traditional masonry brownstone. “As the building comes to grade and its opacity increases, it more closely reflects the history of the neighborhoods within which it rises” explained the architect in a press release.

Overall, the mixed-use tower will feature 109 condominium units, 240 rental units, and over 20,000 square feet of street-level retail space. With a curtain wall and floor-to-ceiling windows, the building is designed to maximize 360-degree views of Boston, Cambridge, the Charles River, and the Emerald Necklace.
