111 Huntington Ave.
111 Huntington Ave., a mixed-use property with office and retail, features architectural precast concrete with a mix of white cement, colored sands and pigmentation that was used in various colors to accent multiple entrances of the building.
The second-largest building at Prudential Center, this structure bolsters the center's identity as a world-class commercial district. The tower is clad in architectural precast concrete with a mix of white cement, colored sands and pigmentation that was used in various colors to accent multiple entrances of the building.
Set back from the street to preserve the scale, the bottom floors feature precast concrete panels, glass and traditional punched windows that harmonize with the surrounding commercial spaces. Above the 10th floor, the tower emerges as a cylindrical form in which the aluminum and glass curtain wall refers to the existing Prudential Center tower. The use of precast concrete extends into the interior, where it was used for atrium column covers, staircase planter walls and coping. It also was used for the parking structure's entrance panels and along 101 Huntington Avenue to complete a link between the buildings.
