The new glass-enclosed, LEED Gold Atlantic Wharf high-rise, at more than a million square feet, fits cozily with the limestone P

The 1.185-million-sf Atlantic Wharf mixed-use project is being hailed as the flagship development for the new Boston downtown, enabling local developer Boston Properties to bring urban activity to the Fort Point Channel water’s edge. Led by local design firm CBT Architects, the Building Team—including structural engineer McNamara/Salvia, mechanical engineer TMP Consulting Engineers, and general contractor John Moriarty & Associates—preserved the historic seven-story Peabody & Stearns Atlantic Building (1899) and created 86 loft apartments.

The maritime-themed high-rise, with 30 floors of office space, ground-level retail, a six-deck underground garage, a new glass-enclosed atrium, and a two-story civic space with multimedia center, public galleries, and performance space, is the Hub’s first LEED Gold skyscraper.
