Design-Assist-Build
Building envelope solutions for one of Boston’s tallest apartment complexes

Boston, Massachusetts
Avalon North Station apartment complex completed by CRH in downtown Boston

In 2015, AvalonBay, a national developer and manager of multi-family housing, partnered with CRH on the $250 million Avalon North Station apartment complex, one of the tallest in Boston, MA. North Station is a 635,000 square foot, 38-story mixed-use building in downtown Boston that includes 503 apartments, a public-pedestrian mall on the ground floor, and commercial retail space.

The Building Solutions team at CRH was brought in early during the design phase of the project to provide the best solutions to meet the project’s needs, including sound attenuation, thermal insulation, and wind load requirements provided by experts from Oldcastle BuildingEnvelope®, a CRH Company. Together they worked on a Design-Assist-Build solution to bring this project to life. CRH provided a custom engineered curtain wall, windows, and storefronts on time and within budget to help make the Avalon North Station project a great success.

In January 2017, Avalon North Station was LEED® Silver certified by the U.S. Green Building Council.
