The Davis Companies and Suffolk Construction Celebrate the Topping Off of 100 Shawmut in Boston


BOSTON—The Davis Companies along with the Boston Chinese Evangelical Church (BCEC) and the Chinese Consolidated Benevolent Association (CCBA), placed the final steel beam on 100 Shawmut in Boston.

Once complete, 100 Shawmut will be the South End’s newest collection of 138 thoughtfully designed luxury condominium residences slated to open in late 2020. Pre-sales for this property have already begun with strong interest.

“We are thrilled to celebrate yet another milestone of 100 Shawmut,” said Jonathan Davis,
Founder & CEO of The Davis Companies. “This project is a great example of an innovative and sustainable development in what is becoming a new nexus between the Back Bay and South End neighborhoods. We are honored to be a part of it.”

Located at the intersection of Herald Street and Shawmut Avenue, the 13-story, residential
project is comprised of 22 studios, 34 one-bedrooms, 23 one-bedrooms with a den, 27
two-bedrooms, 15 two-bedrooms with a den, 12 three-bedrooms, 3 three-bedrooms with a den and 2 four-bedrooms, 11 of which are penthouses.

When 100 Shawmut is completed, the 232,000-square-foot property will seamlessly integrate the historic character of the original 1920’s facade with a newly constructed glass structure designed by The Architectural Team (TAT). The building will have an unprecedented amount of outdoor space, including a number of private balconies offering unmatched vistas of the city.

EMBARC Studio, the interior design team, has created a modern approach to the interiors with a mixture of white oak wood detailing and textural stone conveying a warm, neutral color palette, transitioning and merging the historic architecture with a fresh, new interior.
The building will have a comprehensive amenity program that includes a private dining/
conference room with an entertaining kitchen, great room, a billiard room, activity lounge,
library, fitness center, dog wash station and children’s playroom. The 13th-floor features an
indoor and outdoor lounge, and a rooftop sky lounge equipped with gas grills and fire pits.

100 Shawmut also houses 3-levels of enclosed private parking containing 112 spaces for residents.

A direct result of The Davis Companies partnership with the BCEC and the CCBA will be the
creation of up to 536 rental and home ownership units, including 26% dedicated to affordable housing, as well as ground floor retail, commercial, community and cultural spaces that will enliven the Washington Street and Shawmut Avenue corridors. In addition, 100 Shawmut will provide 26% on-property public open space, including an East/West pedestrian connection that will provide local residents with a safe, well-lit public pathway.

The Davis Companies also committed $200,000 to community programs including the planning, designing, engineering and construction of an open space area, job training and services to the Asian American Civic Association and additional funds to the Community Benefits Grant application process.
