Project Description
Replace existing, 361-vehicle parking garage built in 1986 with four-story life science building with mechanical penthouse set back from the roof edges to minimize visibility from the ground. No onsite accessory parking, allowing both of today’s curb cuts on Farnsworth Street to be eliminated. Per Coastal Flood Resilience Overlay District, dry flood-proofed at least two feet above Sea Level Rise Base Flood Elevation (19.5 ft. BCB). LEED BD&C: Core and Shell Gold.
