Construction is entering its final phase at The Cove, a Broadstone community in Hingham, MA. An integrated design team led by Alliance Residential Company, LLC includes Allen & Major Associates, Inc. (A&M), Cube 3, Shadley Associates, and Callahan Construction Managers.
Situated on a 12.06± acre former commercial site, the 220-unit residential development is slated to be completed by the end of 2020. Located adjacent to the Bare Cove Park and along the banks of the Weymouth Back River, the site has posed some challenging design considerations including avoiding a stump burial area and the proximity of an ancient Native American archeological resource area for the Mashpee Wampanoag Tribe. The creative siting of the building and the cooperation of all parties involved mitigated all issues and allowed the project to progress.
Designed by Cube 3, two buildings with subsurface parking garages under make up the full build-out. Building 1 includes 82 units and a 54-parking stall garage while Building 2 includes 138 units and a 162-parking stall garage. Both buildings 1 and 2 will include a mix of indoor/outdoor amenity spaces. Building 2 will have a sky lounge on the 4th floor while other site amenities include a boardwalk plaza area and ramp leading to a conservation land south of the site
Site engineers, A&M worked closely with landscape architects Shadley Associates during the permitting and design development phases to ensure that as many of the existing trees were protected during the construction process. During the extensive permitting process, A&M also provided field services including an Existing Sewer Infrastructure Assessment Report, a Lift Station (Pump Station) Assessment Report, Hydrant Flow Testing, soil evaluation, and flying balloons at proposed building corners to allow abutting residents to see the proposed building location.
Callahan Construction Managers is carefully maintaining the schedule and budget, as well as overseeing the seamless transition between all phases of design, preconstruction, and construction.
“Callahan appreciates the opportunity to work on yet another project in Hingham,” stated Dave Boucher, Project Executive for Callahan Construction Managers at the Broadstone Bare Cove project. “The collaboration that is taking place at Broadstone Bear Cove is a testament to the close relationships between all parties involved in the development.”
Michael J. Boujoulian, Managing Director of Alliance Residential Company New England is pleased to see the rapid pace of the project, which has been made possible through the hard work, synergy, and expertise of the development team. “We’re proud to be partnered with Allen & Major and Callahan Construction on this exciting and complicated project.
