The project at 55 India Street is a mixed-use luxury condominium high-rise development located on the Rose Fitzgerald Kennedy Greenway in Boston. Consisting of 44 units, including 4 penthouse units, and 4,000 square feet of commercial space, this high-design building utilizes premium materials and also adds improvement to the entire block including sidewalks, curbs, and decorative pavement along Well Street. In concept, the project comprises a masonry volume which is grounded and locked into the historic fabric of the Town Cove subdistrict while presenting a lighter, larger scale, glassier series of facetted facades arrayed along the Greenway edges. The project massing respects the historic street walls along India, Franklin, and Well Streets, and the fine-scaled detailing of the project including a granite base, cast stone belt coursing, and brick masonry provide the rich materiality consistent with the close-up human-scaled experience of these tight historic streets. The building respectfully nestles into the historic context of the Town Cove subdistrict, preserving the historic character and scale of the neighborhood.
