Champions Row - Grand Opening
11.02.18 Champions Row, the new main entrance to the TD Garden, opened to the public yesterday following a private dedication ceremony attended by local dignitaries, the ownership team, contractors, and design consultants. The opening represents a major milestone in the completion of the Hub on Causeway, one of the country’s largest mixed-use development projects. The project of a lifetime for many of those involved, LeMessurier is proud to have served as the structural engineer of record for all three phases of the Hub, including the design of three towers in addition to the unique structure of Champs Row and podium component seen here. The total project planning is decades in the making going back to the design of the TD Garden, over 25 years ago, which is another project that LeMessurier is proud to have served as the structural engineer of record.
HUB On Causeway - Podium Topping Off
03.01.18 LeMessurier attended the recent topping off ceremony for the podium phase of the new Hub on Causeway development. The Gensler-designed project is located prominently on the site of the old Boston Garden on Causeway Street. The podium building will include movie theaters, a supermarket, creative office spaces, retail, restaurants, an entertainment venue, the new main entrance serving the TD Garden sports complex as well as the MBTA North Station transit hub. The topping off signals a major milestone for a development that will subsequently include residential, hotel and office towers to be constructed on top of the podium.

TD Garden - New East Ramp
01.31.14 As part of the ongoing redevelopment of the North Station region of Boston, the TD Garden has added a second drive-access portal to the underground parking garage. To accomplish this, the ramp is supported on 100-year-old timber piles, which previously supported a brick building. Additionally, a corner column of the TD Garden had to be cut and transferred to allow the drive access to pass beneath the existing column. LeMessurier participated in all phases of the project from reusing the timber piles, to the temporary underpinning and permanent re-situating of the Garden’s corner column, the removal of a handful of existing below-grade columns and overcoming several found conditions. Coupled with the Nashua Street tower project, we are pleased to play such an active role in the revitalization of this historic Boston neighborhood.
