BOSTON-The Fallon Co. names three architectural firms to head up the design of 1.8 million sf of office, residential and hotel buildings on the Fan Pier site. Hill Glazier Architects, Elkus Manfredi Architects Ltd. of Boston and Brennan Beer Gorman LLP of New York City will design the waterfront parcel.

Hill Glazier was selected to design a five-star hotel and residential tower while Brennan Beer Gorman will design a 500,000-sf office building. Elkus Manfredi, which was selected in December to design the ground-level layout and streetscape of a nine-block area along a harbor marina, was also picked to design a 500,000-sf office building on the site with 300,000 sf of retail space.

“We’ve selected some of the most respected architects in the country to work with us to make Fan Pier a world-class project for Boston,” says Joseph Fallon, owner of the Fallon Co. “This represents about $1 billion worth of development now under design. Things are really starting to happen on Fan Pier. The fact that there’s been so much interest from these architectural firms is a testament to the strength of the commercial and residential real estate markets in Boston.”

Fallon plans to build nearly three million sf of commercial and residential buildings on the 20.5-acre site. Included in those plans are a waterfront walkway, public parks and several cultural, civic and other amenities. The project’s first phase, which will be comprised of a 22-story, 175-unit residential building and a 26-story, 500,000-sf office tower, is set to begin construction later next year.
