Foundry Square Adds a Feather to its Class Cap

New, 4 comments

There is a whole bunch of back slapping going on at Wilson Meany Sullivan, as the company’s Foundry Square development earned the Urban Land Institute’s Award for Excellence in Economic Transformation this month. SOMA has seen a rash of development over the past decade, and projects such as Foundry Square have helped transition it from an industrial cityscape to a grab bag of luxury condo developments. While it seems the market may have overran that trend, the 1.6 million square foot Foundry Square certainly represents an improvement on the area, “activating the streets” with its “human-scale architecture”, all the while replacing an area “hemmed in on all sides by ramps and rail lines?consequently suffering a lack of character and pedestrian street life”.
