“I fundamentally believe that real estate done well has a chance to transform neighborhoods for the better. I love the city of Boston. I consider it my city even though I wasn’t born and raised here. I care about the neighborhoods and believe in building consensus to ensure that everything I do is a win-win for the neighborhoods, the city, the development team, and our investors.”

Empowering
Neighbor­hoods

The Viridian energizes a key block of The Fenway with high-end residential and dynamic retail. It also created a new home for the Fenway Community Center, a developer-created non-profit that was endowed to ensure it would remain in the heart of the neighborhood.

45 Province St.

Neighborhood: Downtown Crossing (Boston)
370,000 sq ft / 137 Residential Units / Restaurant and Retail

Good Design

The project at 45 Province Street transformed a 14-story mechanical garage into a dynamic 32-story luxury condo tower with retail, adding 24/7 vitality to a resurgent Downtown Crossing – combining cutting edge technology with warmth and charm while increasing parking.

Landmark building

Lafayette Center

Building Community

The former Flower Exchange is being transformed into a next generation life science and technology urban campus offering offices, labs, biotech and biomedical space, retail, public green space and civic and cultural spaces – a new thriving hub in the South End.
