Commercial & Restaurant

Huntington Avenue Plaza, Huntington Ave., Boston, MA

Initially this work entailed a
comprehensive exterior restoration
for a city block of retail
and office spaces fronting
onto Huntington Ave just
west of Symphony Hall. This
restoration included new window
systems, storefronts, and
fašade elements of divergent
materials required sealing to
create a watertight fašade.
Since this first project, PAF
has been commissioned to
provide various space planning
and food services planning
to the management of
this property.
The food services work has
been done for the management
company, and for the
Burger King franchise, and
for the Panera Bread franchise.
Additional work has
been done for offices on the
upper floors.

Arial View

Dillon's Pub and Restaurant is a full service hospitality establishment located in the Back Bay. Our work entailed building a patio with stairs and asociated covers and entry marquis and gateways providing enclosure from and views to the street. We also oversaw the design permitting and installation of the windows to the old police station space. This work has allowed the location to be able to open up to the elements in the summer months.  It has become one of the favorite places to enjoy a beer and a burger either during or after watching the game.

-    A complete interior renovation after a fire caused subsantial damage.

-    New kitchen and food service.

-   Saving the building from crumbling into Boston Harbor.  By working collaboratively with a team of engineering consultants and a construction manager, the work was accomplished on a 6-month fast track schedule, minimizing lost revenue by the restaurant.  Click here for more on this adaptive reuse project.
