Preservation MA Honors Huntington Theatre

We are thrilled to share that the renovation of Boston’s Huntington Theatre was among this year’s honorees and was recognized with the 2023 Robert H. Kuehn Preservation Award! This award recognizes projects that meld collaborative partnerships with creative and cutting-edge ideas for the rehabilitation and active reuse of historic buildings.

On October 11th, Preservation Massachusetts hosted their annual awards celebration, recognizing the best in preservation across the Commonwealth. In honor of the Massachusetts Historic Tax Credit Program’s 20th anniversary, this year’s event focused on celebrating the landmark legislation by dedicating the 2023 Awards to “Partners in Preservation.” The event took place at the Massachusetts State House and was followed by a cocktail reception at Carrie Nation.

Thank you, Preservation Massachusetts, for recognizing this significant project and for hosting such a spectacular awards celebration!

Living Village Begins Construction

Congratulations to Yale Divinity School on celebrating a significant milestone for the Living Village Project!

On October 11th, our project team joined Yale Divinity School staff, faculty, trustees, and more to signal the official start of construction for the Living Village project with a groundbreaking ceremony. Scheduled for completion in August 2025, the Living Village will be the largest Living Building Challenge (LBC) 4.0 certified residence on a university campus in U.S. history, and the first on an Ivy League campus.

We are thrilled to see this project move forward and eventually inspire those who experience it to deepen their connection with the natural environment.

Two Projects Celebrate Ribbon-Cuttings and Openings

This fall, Bruner/Cott celebrated the official opening of two projects – the Rivermark Towers in Cambridge, Massachusetts and the Aliki Perroti & Seth Frank Lyceum at Amherst College.

On August 30th, our team traveled to Amherst, Massachusetts to celebrate the ribbon-cutting of the Aliki Perroti & Seth Frank Lyceum, a new, 20,000 sf academic facility to house the History Department and Center for Humanistic Inquiry (CHI) at Amherst College. The project combines the reuse of an unused, historic home with carbon-conscious new construction to create a new space on campus for learning, collaboration, and exploring the human condition. The celebration was attended by College President Michael Elliot, as well as significant faculty, staff, and trustees of Amherst College.

On October 4th, we joined our client, Homeowner’s Rehab, Inc., as well as NEI General Contracting, Mayor Sumbul Siddiqui, Esq. of Cambridge, Deputy Secretary Jennifer Maddox of the Massachusetts Executive Office of Housing and Livable Communities, Mark Teden of MassHousing, Rep. Mike Connolly, and Sen. Sal DiDomenico, to celebrate the opening of Rivermark Towers., a 490,000 sf apartment situated along the Charles River in Cambridge, Massachusetts. The project renovated and revitalized the affordable housing complex with a focus on energy efficiency, occupant health and wellness, equity, and community.
