One of the most highly anticipated luxury residential towers that will ever be built on the east coast of the United States has just made another giant step forward. ‘Copley Place’, the 52-story, $500 Million project, has just selected New York-based ODA Architecture to design the amenities, public spaces, and interiors of this stunning development.
Located at 100 Huntington Avenue at the edge of the Back Bay and South End neighborhoods and will rise above Copley Square, the tower will be built above what is currently Neiman Marcus that borders Dartmouth Street.
This massive mixed-use development will stand as one of the tallest in the entirety of Boston. It was approved last year by the Boston Redevelopment Authority, and will see 109 condominiums, 433 apartments, and 115,000 square feet of first-rate expanded retail and restaurant space added in a gorgeous all-season glass enclosed atrium.
The search for a firm who would be primarily in charge of the interior design was certainly an extensive process. The developers, the Simon Property Group who are the nation’s largest shopping mall owner, noted that ODA Architecture emerged as the ultimate choice for establishing a new residential experience for the Back Bay. Their experienced backed by their cutting edge interior design services for hospitality, luxury residential, cultural, and commercial projects were second to none.
Gaylon Melton, the Vice President of Design at the Simon Property Group, shared that, “We were looking for a rising star in the design world that could deliver a new definition of interior luxury for this iconic building,” he said. “And we believe ODA is key to bringing a whole new luxury lifestyle to Boston.”
The lead architectural firm for the master planning of the facility is Elkus-Manfredi Architects. They are responsible for the exterior design of the residential tower, the atrium, and the expanded retail space.
The groundbreaking for this spectacular endeavor is slated for spring of 2015.
