The Macallen Building is the second phase of a 270-unit residential development at the tip of the Fort Point Channel in South Boston. The building contains three parking levels, a 20,000 sq ft elevated green space, and 140 units spread over an additional eleven levels. The building is the first multi-unit housing in Boston to achieve LEED® Gold certification. SGH was the structural engineer of record for the project.
