Completion of the Central Artery/Tunnel project, Boston’s “Big Dig,” is spurring a stunning revitalization of Boston’s waterfront. One example is Atlantic Wharf (formerly Russia Wharf), located next to the site of the Boston Tea Party, where merchant ships, sailing between Boston and St. Petersburg, once docked. The Atlantic Wharf redevelopment will include a combination of office, residential, retail and civic spaces. The existing buildings, to be largely preserved and renovated, will include residential uses while offices will be located in a new, 31-story tower constructed above portions of the existing low rise buildings.
The below-grade portion of the project offers technical challenges in supporting the existing historical facades, while excavating almost 70 feet next to these structures. In addition, old wharves exist beneath the site, and a large granite block seawall is immediately adjacent to the Fort Point Channel.
