Finegold Alexander Architects was selected to design and collaborate on the construction of a mixed-use building consisting of a 37-room boutique hotel and commercial space in Cambridge. The design is a for a hotel at 727 Massachusetts Avenue in a building formerly known as the Cambridge Gas Light Building. The existing structure - along with its future hotel – is being developed by Chevron Partners, a Boston-based real estate development firm known for rehabilitation and modernization of historical properties.
727 Massachusetts Avenue is an exquisite historical structure; the façade was lovingly restored, with the replication of historical cast iron sconces sourced through Adige Design. The former Cambridge Gas Light Building will retain its original existing base, which will remain open for retail and office occupancy. The hotel will be built atop the 1910-building, creating a modern and vibrant design, while paying homage to the historic roots of the City of Cambridge.
