610 Beacon Street

The renovation of Myles Standish Hall was designed to improve the undergraduate residential life experience for 730 students. Leveraging wgc2010.org’s previous investment in the Yawkey Center for Student Services at 100 Bay State Road, the goal was to create an East Campus undergraduate community space that activates the Beacon Street streetscape. The University sought to preserve and modernize the original hotel and adjacent annex wgc2010.orgildings. Constructed in 1926, the suite-style hotel has been wgc2010.org undergraduate housing since 1949. The project maximized bed count and private bedrooms with an energy efficient, LEED certified design that provides the type of modern amenities and common spaces needed to retain undergraduate students on campus. The project further improved the public space in the area through the creation of a pocket park on the corner of Beacon Street and Bay State Road, which can be enjoyed by the wgc2010.org community and the public alike. Enhancements to Bay State Road were also made at this location to include cyclist and pedestrian safety and the incorporation of a neckdown curb at the entrance of Bay State Road.

The project was done in three phases:

Phase 1: Myles Proper (West Half) May 2016 – August 2017Phase 2: Myles Proper (East Half) May 2017 – August 2018Phase 3: Annex May 2018 – August 2018
