Located in the Fenway section of Boston, Mass., the Olmsted Plaza Research and Development Center was a former Sears, Roebuck and Co. distribution warehouse. Listed on the National Register of Historic Places, the 1920’s art deco concrete twenty story tower is a Boston Landmark. The building had been vacant for a while, and the environment began to cause the exterior façade to start to decay. The project consisted of the restoration of the cast stone exterior and the adaptive re-use of the interior as research and development labs for the nearby medical center and universities. Meticulous recording of the existing exterior conditions as well as placing labs within the confines of the existing concrete structure were some of the more challenging aspects of this project.
