Steel Rising

As Boston foliage springs to life, steel columns emerge from the earth along Western Avenue, beginning to take the form of the first building at the New Charlesview. Following months of excavation and lots and lots of subterranian work, visible progress moves along at a steady clip as ironworkers quickly lift, connect and detail the steel structure of the “D1” building, a 52-unit multifamily building on the corner of Litchfield Street and Western Avenue. As the steel structure moves up to the three- and five-story heights of the building, decking will go on quickly, with concrete floor slabs to follow. By Memorial Day, the shape and massing of the building will be visible to viewers.

Structural Steel Erection

It has been an exciting few weeks on the Charlesview site as the garage structure has been quickly erected.  What a difference two weeks can make at this stage of construction!
