144 Addison Street, East Boston
Resiliency: Inland Flood Hazard, Resilient Infrastructure
Sustainability: Green Building
The first floor of the buildings will be located at an elevation of approximately 21.5 feet above Boston City Base in order to account for current and future flood elevations. All important building infrastructure will be located above the 100-year flood level as represented on the FEMA Flood Insurance Rate Maps in order to prevent a loss of service in the event of coastal storm. The garage level and other ground-floor uses will be flood-resilient to minimize risk of property damage from coastal storms, and building systems will be designed to be resilient to loss of power and extreme heat conditions.
