Echelon Seaport Achieves LEED Silver Certification

Across the street from 121 Seaport – a building defined by its sustainable design approach – the recently completed Echelon Seaport has achieved LEED Silver Certification! 

One of the largest residential developments in the neighborhood, comprised of three 21-story towers with amenities that include indoor and outdoor pools, residential lobbies, and shared parking facilities, Echelon Seaport’s integrated approach stands as a model of urban sustainable building. CBT, working with building exterior design firm Kohn Pederson Fox, has reframed an otherwise massive city block by breaking the parcel into three towers and an active network of pedestrian walkways, galleries, and memorable public spaces. On a site spanning 3.25 acres, 36% of which is dedicated to open space, Echelon Seaport innovates the traditional Boston mid-rise residential block by creating meaningful public space, more than 32% of which is vegetated, and towers with distinctly slender massing and stepped terraces. In addition to its emphasis on open space, the project also prioritizes both energy savings and wellness for residents with access to outdoor views in over 95% of regularly occupied space.
