Dyer Brown worked with The Davis Companies on the repositioning of 88 Black Falcon – a former World War II-era military facility located in Boston’s Seaport District. Inspired by the building’s history and maritime roots, the 376,000 SF complex has been reimagined with industrial finishes and a refreshed identity.
Dyer Brown’s renovation includes updated entrances, common areas, restrooms, elevator lobbies, a café, bike room, and newly built state-of-the-art fitness center. Dark, warm metals and muted wood textures reminiscent of marine architecture have been incorporated into the design, establishing a crisp exterior palette that welcomes natural light and views of the Harbor, cargo cranes, and cruise ships. Under the theme of “the art of making,” Dyer Brown repositioned the building with large-scale artwork, bold environmental graphics, and engaging wayfinding to match its vision and reinforce Black Falcon’s 21st-century brand.
