The Ritz-Carlton Hotel & Residences is a two building mixed-use complex containing residential, hotel, and retail space. The 400 ft. (122 m) south tower contains the 200-key Ritz-Carlton Boston, 160 apartments, retail, an 80,000 sq. ft. (7,400 m²) fitness club, restaurants, conference rooms, 3,900 stadium cinema seats, and underground parking for 850 cars. The 375 ft. (114 m) north tower contains an extended stay hotel with 84 apartments, 150 condominiums, retail, and a day care facility.
As part of the development, an adjacent office building at 172 Tremont was renovated to a 12,000 sq. ft. (1,100 m²) Class A office building with new roof terrace. In addition, the historic Paramount Theater was stabilized and the façade and marquee was restored.
The Ritz-Carlton Hotel & Residences transformed an undesirable urban neighborhood known as the “Combat Zone” into a high-quality, mixed-use destination. The project fits into Boston’s urban fabric by complementing the neighborhood’s existing mix of uses, and by encouraging 24-hour activity while creating a sense of place and anchoring the emerging district.
