Redeveloping a Boston landmark
Schrafft’s City Center was once the manufacturing site of the famous Schrafft’s Candy Factory. IBI Group worked with CBT Architects in the redevelopment of the existing waterfront dock and open space, including:
- the Main Street Entry Plaza;
- the 529 drop-off and open space; and
- the Pedestrian Promenade connection to the Boat Pier and Waterfront.
All areas were transformed into clean, clear, unique transition spaces for use by tenants and guests. Site improvements included small gathering spaces, accessible pedestrian connections, landscaping, site furnishings, and accent lighting.
