The apartments in Longfellow Towers, twin residential towers in the West End, are some of the nicest living in the city. To match the luxury of their apartments, owner Equity Residential set out to improve the public spaces and hired Rojas Design to create an elegant renovation plan. Noting Construction Coordinators, Inc. (CCI)’s work on similar projects, such as The Bryant in the Back Bay and Granada Highlands in Malden, Longfellow Towers hired them to perform the renovations.
The project was similar to other residential constructions, in that the main priorities were minimizing vibrations, dust, sound and other byproducts of construction in order to avoid disturbing the residents. Work on the hallways included new carpeting, new wall coverings and new paint, but most importantly, CCI added a beautiful curved wooden ceiling element to each main hallway. The scale of the project, however, caused difficulty: there were two towers, each with forty floors, and each floor had one or more hallways in need of renovation, adding up to roughly a hundred work-sites. Each tower also had a multi-story lobby set to receive wood panels, curved walls and terrazzo flooring. Despite the sheer amount of work, CCI took every possible step to avoid causing intrusions upon the residents and avoided creating any significant disturbances upon the residents of the towers.
Now, thanks to CCI’s hard work to bring new elegance to Longfellow Towers, one of Boston’s premier luxury communities has become even more attractive to new and existing residents alike.
