40 Trinity Place

Boston, MA

The new 33-story tower replaces the aging 11-story Boston Common Hotel and Conference Center and embodies an ambitious mix of uses including a 220 room, four-star hotel, 100 residential condominiums, a celebrity chef restaurant, a sky lobby and bar, a two-story public outdoor patio and high rise conference center. The design is particularly sensitive to context as the building is within close proximity to Copley Square and adjacent to the iconic Hancock Tower. The building exterior is sculpturally distinctive, explicitly designed to distinguish itself from the adjacent buildings and to avoid blurring its skyline reading as a separate structure. Shadow and wind impacts were also carefully considered, and the building massing, with its gently molded curves, were crafted to minimize both.
