Architects Go Back to Basics with Brick and Stone Façades.
As glass and steel buildings become increasingly prevalent, cities are looking shinier and more futuristic than ever. And while many architects prefer this ultra-modern aesthetic, a handful are going back to the basics, using handmade brick and textured stone to mirror classic buildings from bygone days.
Robert A.M. Stern Architects gained inspiration from Boston’s traditional red-brick buildings when designing Lovejoy Wharf, a 157-unit condominium complex that overlooks Charles River and the Boston Harbor.
North End / Waterfront Targeted for Hubway Expansion
After years of construction, the North End cycle-track as part of Connect Historic Boston is finally nearing completion. As such, the North End / Waterfront has been identified as a target zone for the Hubway expansion because of its updated roadways, central location and popularity within the city. The project aims to position city bike stations within a 5-minute walk of each other to ensure easy public access.
A new restaurant is coming to Boston's Lovejoy Wharf.
Tom Schlesinger-Guidelli, the nephew of James Beard Award-winning chef and author Chris Schlesinger, announced on Tuesday that he will open Alcove next spring at the waterfront luxury property backed by Related Beal. It would be the first restaurant at the 260,000-square-foot project.
Schlesinger-Guidelli spent years working at his uncle's restaurants — East Coast Grill in Cambridge and The Back Eddy in Westport, Mass. He also worked at Eastern Standard Kitchen & Drinks, Craigie on Main and served as general manager at Island Creek Oyster Bar in Kenmore Square.
Related Beal President Kimberly Sherman Stamler was recently named to Boston Business Journal's Power 50 List, which recognizes the most powerful business leaders in Boston.
Kimberly's hard work, dedication, and unique vision led to the creation of Robert A.M. Stern designed Lovejoy Wharf, offering a new waterfront living option with unmatched amenities. Under her oversight, Related Beal has transformed what was once a dilapidated section of the waterfront into a completely revitalized portion of the Harborwalk for the public to enjoy.
