The Cove - Hingham, MA

Multi-family Residential

Services: Civil Engineering

Situated on a 12.06± acre former commercial site, the 220-unit residential development is located adjacent to the Bare Cove Park and along the banks of the Weymouth Back River.  The site 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. 

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 has 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

During the extensive permitting process, A&M 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.
