Project Overview

286-290 Tremont Street, known as Parcel 12C, is located in one of the densest sections of Boston, situated between a parking garage and The Doubletree Hotel, as well as being at the convergence point of several neighborhoods, including Chinatown to the east, Bay Village to the west, and the Theater District to the north.

This mixed-use infill project will be comprised of hotel and residential components. The residential component of the project will create approximately 152 new income-restricted housing units. The ground floor will include a pedestrian courtyard and a community space, which may become the location of the Chinatown Branch of the Boston Public Library.

DREAM Collaborative has been engaged as the Architect for the Residential Program, including the housing units, amenity spaces, and lobby. Stantec is the architect of record and design architecture for the overall project.

288 Tremont Street Partners is a collaborative entity of the Asian Community Development Corporation, Corcoran Jennison, Inc., MP Boston, and Tufts Shared Services Inc.

Authentic Relationships

One of DREAM’s strengths is our ability to make genuine connections with the many stakeholders involved in building projects.

DREAM brings a fresh, diverse perspective to the design and community engagement on the P12C project in Chinatown while Stantec provides the client group with the confidence of a deep portfolio and large-firm resources. The project is stronger thanks to this symbiotic relationship.

A MESSAGE FROM DREAM

Moving Forward in the Age of COVID-19

During these times of extraordinary disruption, DREAM Collaborative remains steadfast in our belief that architecture should work toward the Greater Good. In the wake of the COVID-19 pandemic, lines have been blurred and we’re seeing opportunities all around us to reimagine the way we live, work, and organize our society and our spaces. We are honored to play a part in the transition toward a renewed society that prioritizes well-being, equity, and innovation.

As partners, we’re bringing our curiosity and the diversity of our perspectives to conversations about how design and development will need to evolve in a post-COVID world. We’re convening panel discussions and reaching out to other minority and women-owned businesses to brainstorm solutions to the unique and compounded challenges we face. Most importantly, we’re committed to providing the highest level of service and support to our valued clients and partners in the community, who we know are also being pushed to the limits of their resources and ingenuity in order to thrive in this historic moment.
