240A Newbury Street

Base Building Renovation
Back Bay - Boston, MA

Located in the heart of Boston’s premier retail destination, 240A Newbury Street was once a bustling nightlife locale. More recently, the building had fallen into a state of disrepair. J.L. Dunn was tasked with providing much needed structural repairs to the masonry, and adding additional structural steel supports for the added weight of sartorial equipment. The interior of the building was entirely gutted, and J.L. Dunn completed base building upgrades in preparation for a tenant fit out. The base building upgrades include a new storefront, the addition of an elevator and second set of egress stairs, BBAC approved windows, electrical, plumbing, and HVAC updates, and replacing existing deteriorating floors with new joists and subfloors. On the exterior, an old brick connector building was demolished to make way for a three story curtain wall installation, connecting the existing three buildings on all levels for the first time. 240A Newbury Street is now the home of SuitSupply’s 100th store.
