SW Boston Hotel Venture LLC / W Boston Hotel and Residences

Transformation of Parking Lot to Hotel/Residences

Location: Boston, MA

Size: 350,000 SF

Completion: 2011

The W Boston Hotel and Residences redefines the Midtown/Theater District area, and bolsters the high-end hotel living lifestyle options in the heart of the city. This upscale mixed-use property is a 26-story high-rise consisting of 235 hotel rooms, 122 luxury residences, 14,300 SF of high-end retail and restaurant space, and 142 underground parking spaces.

Redgate executives helped define the program, and led the city and state entitlement process to successfully permit the site. Our team then provided design and construction oversight, which involved forming and managing an extensive consultant team of architects, engineers, traffic consultants, environmental experts, and FF&E vendors, among others. The project was designed in alignment with the W Hotel standards and the owner’s requirements to ensure brand consistency through design implementation and customer experience. Redgate executives also assisted in the implementation of the condominium sales strategy including construction of model units, buyer customization and an entire floor showcasing some of Boston’s top interior designers.
