A project launch, reception and presentation of the bold changes underway at Schrafft’s City Center was held at the redefined business campus in Charlestown. The four-building complex is now undergoing several capital improvements.
The vision and inspiration of owner/developer The Flatley Company, JLL, and CBT Architects was showcased at the event held in The Powerhouse Building. Many guests arrived via the yacht Beacon from Rowes Wharf.
“Our vision is to unify the campus and create a dynamic corporate environment for a variety of demographics,” said CBT’s Haril Pandya. “The product will be a celebration, and transformation of the nostalgic candy factory to a cool and energized place revitalized for today’s tenants.
“The objective,” continued Haril. “is to unlock the campus’ potential, provide connectivity to the exterior and interior spaces, and greatly improve the arrival and public space experience.”
According to Flatley CEO John Roche who also spoke at the affair: “Schrafft’s City Center is iconic with a long history of sustained occupancy. This project will further our leasing success and the Center’s footprint in Charlestown.”
Schrafft’s City Center is the largest city campus in Boston’s urban ring. JLL represents The Flatley Company in the leasing and marketing.
