The historic Mill Village buildings on Boston Post Road in Sudbury, MA, were destroyed by fire on January 2, 1999.
Program: To rebuild the 30,000 SF complex of shops and offices as quickly as possible by using the historical footprint, while enhancing its usability by upgrading the ground floor retail space and the second floor office space.
Design Concept: An elevator tower links the two primary buildings, permitting handicapped access to all floors. A steel frame and concrete plank construction was used to enable rapid construction and fireproofing.
|The new development and its architecture remain consistent with that of New England mill village. The design was achieved while respecting tight budget constraints and a record-breaking schedule. A majority of the former tenants have returned, and were open for business by December 1999.|
