As exclusive leasing agent, property manager and construction manager for 45 Milk Street, a year-long capital improvements program has just been completed. The dramatic nine-story Beaux Arts style mid-rise is located in the heart of downtown Boston and the project, by JLL Construction, included a renovation of the two-story lobby and select interior spaces.
Built in 1893 for the International Trust Company, 45 Milk Street was modernized in 2005 and 1990. It features historical architecture, high ceilings, large windows with an abundance of natural light, and street level retail.
Architect Dyer Brown designed the lobby renovation to enhance the beauty of the existing historical features while giving the space a modern, clean look. A custom reception desk paired with a large statement light fixture highlights the double height dome space, while new general lighting brightens the space and enhances the existing historic plasterwork throughout. Elegant furniture and built in seating speak to both history and innovation through classic silhouettes upholstered in modern textiles.
