The Kensington

Boston, MA

A sculpted modern addition to the Boston skyline, The Kensington tower is highly contextual in the massing and materials of its podium, which relate in scale and rhythm to its neighbors, including the abutting China Trade Center, a Boston Landmark Building the firm renovated in 1985. Located in the Boylston Square area, the $172 million, luxury 27-story high-rise includes 381 residential units, 4,000 square feet of retail space, and four above-grade parking levels allowing for 107 vehicles. The neighborhood is currently undergoing a complete transformation which is further enhanced by the tower with its new retail space and café, creating an active pedestrian connection between Boylston and Washington Streets.
