The Savoy, originally built in the late nineteenth century, looks out to Boston’s South End historic district.  Real estate developers planned to convert The Savoy to a six-story, luxury condominium building with ground-floor commercial space.  The owner sought to preserve the historic appearance while maximizing space and views to command a premium for the thirteen units.  SGH was the structural engineer for the project, which involved demolition of the existing building and preservation of the two facades that face the historic district.
