Suffolk successfully delivered Boston’s House of Blues music hall.
The House of Blues rises three stories and holds more than 2,400 patrons, making it one of the largest concert halls in Boston. Suffolk’s project team completed construction on an accelerated schedule to accommodate the House of Blues’ scheduled opening. The challenging project, built on the site of the former Avalon and Axis nightclubs, sits on a very tight urban site on Lansdowne Street directly across from Fenway Park. The building’s exterior consists of corrugated metal siding with colored accent panels. The Lansdowne Street facade is clad in brick, which gives the building a sense of historical scale since it is in such close proximity to the historic Fenway Park. Despite the challenging site logistics and accelerated construction schedule, the project team was able to deliver a successful project through a collaborative effort with the owner, tenant, subcontractors, other general contractors, and the City of Boston.
