Design strategy creates upscale and amenity-rich Class A office building
BOSTON – July 15, 2014 – Margulies Perruzzi Architects (MPA), one of Boston’s most innovative architectural and interior design firms, announced today the opening of the repositioned and renovated building at Two Heritage Drive at Heritage Landing in North Quincy, Mass. Campanelli engaged MPA to work with their design, leasing and construction teams to develop a comprehensive strategy for improvements to the nine-floor, 185,000 SF Class A office building that provides potential tenants with all the amenities and dynamism of a downtown building.
“It was important to us that the repositioning of Heritage Landing be competitive with the building and workspace design – as well as amenities – of similar Class A office buildings in downtown Boston,” said Russell G. Dion, AIA, project executive at Campanelli. “Creating an urban feeling space within a suburban property, MPA worked collaboratively with us to transform Two Heritage Drive into the hip office address that is attracting Boston’s growing professional tenants.”
Built in 1982, Two Heritage Drive required significant exterior and interior updates to renovate it as an upscale, high-tech building with urban amenities. The exterior front access point was repositioned to a more accommodating area of the building, and two entries were redesigned as easily recognizable, branded arrival points; both feel more current and inviting. Inside, MPA redesigned the lobby with a sleek and dynamic vibe and added a new contemporary urban café featuring the downtown eatery Sebastians, a grab-and-go coffee kiosk, and a high-end fitness center. The existing 70-seat conference center was refreshed with modern finishes, and core building components were updated, including elevator lobbies, bathrooms, and common spaces on upper floors.
Located less than a mile from I-93 and seven miles from Downtown Boston, Heritage Landing offers direct access to the MBTA Red Line.
