Holiday Inn Boston Logan Airport - Chelsea, MA
Hospitality & Entertainment
Partnering with the development team of XSS Hotels and PROCON for this 124 room extended stay hotel, this project transformed an existing blighted vacant parcel into a welcoming gateway feature for those traveling into Chelsea. Situated on the banks of Mill Creek, the project boasts a newly envisioned meandering public pedestrian walkway, flanked by freshly established native landscaping and shoreland vegetation. This also provides a seamless connection to the existing Mill Creek Riverwalk.
A&M’s Survey department provided Existing Conditions, Construction Layout and Foundation Certification for the project. Civil engineering services include site design, permitting, landscape architecture design and erosion control monitoring. Due to the buildings size, the project was considered a major commercial project, and required a Special Permit and Major Site Plan Review from the City of Chelsea.
In collaboration with J. Masterson Construction Corp. and Salmon Falls Nursery & Landscaping, the new hotel is a beautiful example of greening and reuse of an underutilized urban parcel.
