NATICK – Construction of the highly anticipated former American Legion development began in mid-August, with Stonegate Group reuniting with PointsNorth Construction Management and Lim Design Studio on the project. “Stonegate is pleased to once again work with PointsNorth and Lim Design on this exciting renovation project. The quality craftsmanship and superior design of our most recent 2013 collaboration [Piccadilly Place in Downtown Westborough] proves that this team works cohesively with us to create an outstanding product,” stated Dean Calivas, chief operating officer at Stonegate Group.
Over the next several weeks, with guidance from structural engineering experts from Boston Building Consultants and geotechnical engineers from Geosciences Testing and Research, contractors will work to protect the historical integrity of the building by shoring and stabilizing the exterior brick walls in preparation for the interior demolition this fall. While this extra step will add additional time and expense to the project, Calivas explained that “Stonegate understands the importance of preserving this historic Downtown Natick landmark.”
The project is scheduled to be completed in late spring of 2017.
