JOHN MORIARTY LANDS THE DEVELOPMENT DEAL
OF A LIFETIME THAT WILL INCLUDE THE BOSTON
CELTICS AS TENANTS. BY KAT ZEMAN
oston has a new neighborhood on the horizon. Poised on
the Mass Pike and easily accessible from anywhere in the
city, the mixed-use 15-acre development will soon be the
new home of an apartment complex and a variety of commercial businesses, sports venues and a hotel.
Boston Landing is a 15-acre development with a diverse mix of uses.
Welcome to Boston Landing. It's already the new home of the
Boston Bruins hockey team and the Boston Celtics basketball team's
practice facility will follow soon. The mammoth development, which
has been baptized as the revitalization of Boston's Brighton neighborhood, is the brainchild of New Balance Chairman Jim Davis.
Davis wanted a new world headquarters for New Balance, his athletic footwear and fitness apparel empire. His vision soon broadened
to creating a state-of-the-art development that complements the
existing neighborhood fabric through new office space, retail stores,
restaurants and sports-related uses.
"It's an honor to be a part of this type of complex and work with
an exemplary team," says Jamie Noon, project executive at John
Moriarty and Associates. "This type of project is a dream opportunity
in a construction career."
John Moriarty and Associates, a Winchester, Mass.-based construction management firm, has a $500 million contract for work
on the Boston Landing project, with possibility for more work in the
near future. The company has a long track record in the Boston area
and its portfolio contains a wide range of diverse projects. Boston
Landing is one of the company's crown jewels.
"It is the first big complex that you see before you enter the city,"
Noon says. "It's kind of a gateway to the city from the west."
John Moriarty has been known to tackle anything from high-rise
office construction in urban settings to complicated laboratory and healthcare facilities
to residential projects and suburban office
buildings. "We're a diversified company,"
