Commodore Builders is providing preconstruction and construction services for the new 60,000 SF Distillery building located at 455 East First Street in South Boston.
The project involves the demolition of an existing building on a portion of the existing site and the construction of a 6-story Certified Passive House residential building. The building will feature 28 multi-family units that will include a mix of artist live/work studios and loft style residences, retail space and two levels of enclosed parking below.
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.
