Margulies Perruzzi Architects said it has completed a repositioning project of a Quincy office building that now looks to compete with buildings in Downtown Boston seven miles away.
The nine-story building, with 185,000 square feet of space, is Two Heritage Drive at Heritage Landing. And Campanelli, the commercial real estate development company that’s the building’s landlord, commissioned Margulies Perruzzi to give a suburban building built in 1982 a more “hip” urban feel.
“It was important to us that the repositioning of Heritage Landing be competitive with the building and workspace design – as well as amenities – of similar Class A office buildings in downtown Boston,” Campanelli project manager Russell G. Dion said in a statement. “Creating an urban feeling space within a suburban property, MPA worked collaboratively with us to transform Two Heritage Drive into the hip office address that is attracting Boston’s growing professional tenants.”
Among renovations undertaken to achieve a more urban ambiance, “two entries were redesigned as easily recognizable, branded arrival points,” said Margulies Perruzzi, which added that it “redesigned the lobby with a sleek and dynamic vibe and added a new contemporary urban café featuring the downtown eatery Sebastians, a grab-and-go coffee kiosk, and a high-end fitness center.”Chris Reidy can be reached at firstname.lastname@example.org.
