The building program includes an incubator lab, located at the base of the main lab building, and community training labs, located within a stand-alone Pavilion. These spaces are designed to foster burgeoning companies as well as train underserved residents, and a future workforce who might not have a clear pathway into working within STEM industries. By partnering with three, mission-driven non-profits for the programming, workforce development and education, the project seeks to diversify the industry by intertwining architecture with social impact.
A major feature of the project is the approach to the design of the public realm. The landscape is designed as a series of interstitial spaces where people can meet and exchange ideas. At street level, the public spaces extend through the center of the project, providing direct pedestrian paths between the waterfront and a new Silver Line transit station. To better connect the surrounding neighborhoods to opportunities for advancement, this hub is anchored by a new transit station to replace an existing station stop. Designed as a seamless extension of the public realm and with space for last mile transportation options for commuters, tourists, and area residents, the new station will increase the utility and safety while leveraging the existing transit network.
Our approach to resiliency and sustainability is to seamlessly integrate it into the design of the building’s public realm. Measures have been taken to address storm surge and sea level rise throughout the project site by elevating all occupiable spaces and protecting critical infrastructure. Seaport Circle optimizes the outcomes for both the environment and people, providing a comprehensive strategy to achieve a high-performance building that meets the City of Boston’s Net Zero emissions goals and is ready for climate changes in the future.
