Alexandria Real Estate Equities, 270 Third Street Residential Tower

To power efficiency on Lean construction, Gilbane has invested in technology accelerators that were utilized to support the execution of this project and ensure aggressive schedule deadlines were achieved during record-breaking severe winter weather.

New High rise Residential tower in kendall square

Gilbane provided construction management services for the 105,000 square foot Residential Tower at 270 Third Street, in Kendall Square. The new nine-story tower encompasses 91-units and various amenities, including a pet spa, bicycle storage, retail and restaurant space with outdoor patio, and roof deck.

The site was extremely tight and logistically challenging.  The new tower was constructed to the sidewalks on three sides and is 30 feet from the adjacent building on the fourth side. Gilbane also managed the upgrade to the City’s surrounding infrastructure to support this new residential tower.

The residential tower is connected via an underground tunnel to the adjacent Alexandria Real Estate Equities 75-125 Third Street and includes an underground garage constructed by Gilbane.

Architects include DiMella Shaffer, Kleinfelder, Vanasse Hangen Brustlin, Inc. and Payette Associates, Inc.
