The November 6th event is the former The Boston Harbor Association Gala and hosted by Boston Harbor Hotel and food is by Legal Sea Foods.
About the Honorees:
Clippership Wharf:For Lendlease, being a thoughtful developer and good neighbor is an integral part of the company mantra. Clippership Wharf is a testament to the commitment Lendlease has shown to the East Boston community, Boston, and Boston Harbor. Their climate resilient design is cutting edge for waterfront developments. The living shoreline concept is not just a forward thinking climate solution, but is prompting waterfront developers to incorporate resilient design into their overall projects–not as an obligation but as a necessity for the long term viability of building structures, tenants, and the community. Waterfront activation and public access remains a priority for Lendlease and the community stands to benefit from a robust public art plan to a well thought out and designed Harborwalk experience, including new and improved wayfinding and interpretive signage. They have also committed to the redevelopment of subsidized housing adjacent to Clippership Wharf.
Atlantic Wharf: Atlantic Wharf has an exemplary and thoughtful property management plan that is revised annually and welcomes input from a committee of neighborhood advocates with broad interests including artists, non-profits, businesses and, the City and State. Their thoughtful programming activates the space in a way that is welcoming to residents, visitors, and workers and includes fitness classes on the lawn, Berkeley students music sessions, theater shows in the lobby, and summer programming. Boston Properties is focused on addressing sea level rise and climate change and incorporate resilient design strategies into their developments. They are a leader as a “green” company, ranked in the top quadrant of the Global Real Estate Sustainability Benchmark and earned their fifth “Green Star”. They are host to one of the most frequently used and well known FPA spaces in Boston, the Boston Society of Architects.
