The Exchange at 100 Federal Street

"Irreverent, but unabashedly authentic" are words more often associated with a hip new podcast than with a steel building. However, The Exchange at 100 Federal Street, Fabricated by Cives Steel Company - New England Division (AISC Member, AISC Certified) defies typical descriptors. Rising next to Congress Street in the heart of Boston's Financial District, the plate steel and glass prism seems to have been pushed from the earth in a modern city-building earthquake. The final form of the project is the result of a highly collaborative, iterative design process with a clear focus on the design intent while balancing cost and constructability.
