Macallen Building | South Boston, Ma

Situated on a seam between South Boston and an expansive field of industry and infrastructure, the Macallen Building and landscape rise together as an icon of sustainable residential development in this rapidly re-urbanizing district of the city.  Shaped by the forces and scales of its dramatically different contexts, the landscape uses alternative materials and planting strategies to create fresh and innovative scenarios for addressing stormwater management and mitigating the debilitating side effects of urban heat island phenomenon, while simultaneously maximizing its positive urban and social functions. The Macallen development was awarded LEED Gold certification in 2008.
