200 High Street is a 95,000 square foot landmark office building in Boston's Central Business District. A certified Historic rehab, 200 High Street is a combination of three, six-story, brick and granite-faced warehouse structures constructed and interconnected from the mid-1860's through the turn of the century.
|During the 1950's an abutting building facing Atlantic Ave. was razed for the construction of Boston's John Fitzgerald Expressway, leaving an exposed solid brick interior party wall and a 1,200 square foot irregular-shaped lot that followed the curve of the expressway. The developer purchased the 1,200 square foot of land from the city of Boston with the National Park Service's approval to create a new building facade with views towards Boston's waterfront. The historic renovation of this 95,000 SF building included a new seven-story curved brick and limestone addition, which added 900 SF per floor. The new addition filled in the jagged brick party wall which was left with the demolition of the adjacent building and the construction of the elevated expressway in the 1950's. The brick and granite surfaces of the historic building were cleaned and repainted, windows reglazed to meet current energy requirements, metal and wood trim were painted with historically correct colors.|
