BRA Director Peter Meade, Kensington Investment Company, and Suffolk Construction celebrated the "topping-off" of The Kensington, a $188 million project bringing 381 residential units to Washington Street.  The ceremony recognized the 400 construction workers and the placement of the final steel beam on top of the 28-story building. The Kensington Topping Off The Kensington will feature 4,000 SF of ground-floor retail.  In addition to its 60+ affordable units, Kensington Investment Company has given $7 million to the construction of affordable housing for seniors at the Hong Lok House in neighboring Chinatown.  The Kensington broke ground in October 2011 and is slated for occupancy in late 2013.   [caption id="attachment_9484" align="aligncenter" width="240"]Peter at The Kensington Topping Off Director Meade signing the last beam[/caption]
