Boston, MA, USA
245 Residential Units
Central Garden Courtyard
Emerald Court is a residential complex in the St. Vincent neighborhood of South Boston, consisting of 245 one, two and three bedroom condominium units, an enclosed parking garage for approximately 318 cars and approximately 3,672 square feet of on-grade retail space. The complex comprises an entire city block.
The building is configured at the perimeter of the block to create a landscaped “green roof” courtyard in the open central portion that will be nearly one half acre in size. A two level parking structure is located beneath the housing and the courtyard, with one half level below ground and the second level at grade. Therefore, the courtyard is one story above ground, and the street frontage feels like a row of townhouses. Building materials for the project include brick of varying shades and pre-cast concrete decorative elements, aluminum and glass storefronts and window units. Limited use of natural stone is also planned in select locations.
