173-177 Maverick Street
East Boston, MA
173-177 Maverick Street is an extensive renovation and addition to three existing 3-family buildings in Maverick Square, into a mixed-use development of 9-residential units and retail. The exterior walls are just about the only things that will remain of the three buildings, having suffered prolonged disrepair and the haphazard removal of many of the interior structural components.
The new design aspires to honor the old neighborhood by restoring many of the buildings’ historic architectural elements such as the bay windows, cornices and ground level retail space, while turning an eye toward the contemporary with the addition of a penthouse level, recessed from the roof line, with angled volumes and a warm materials palette.
