The Distillery, located at 455 East First St. involves the redevelopment of a 175-year-old South Boston rum distillery. The whopping 179,384 sq. ft building will soon contain 68 loft-style residential units. Included is a mix of artist live/work, an art gallery, greenhouse, retail space, and 123 garage parking spaces. The existing distillery will continue to be preserved. Designed with Icon Architects, it will ultimately include artist live/work studios, loft style residences, underground music practice rooms, an open courtyard venue for performances, a restaurant, a market, a greenhouse, galleries, retail space, an artist residency program, rooftop gardens, open green space, and public artworks.
The new Distillery Building will use approximately 10% of the energy of a typical new building. Passive House, a comprehensive system for designing radically energy efficient buildings from the ground up, is the design system being utilized for the project. The Distillery project will be Passive House certified and will be the largest project of its kind in the United States.
