Event Description

Green Building Tour - The Eddy - Wednesday, April 26, 5:30-8pm, Boston

What makes a building tick?
How much goes into designing a high-end, sustainable apartment complex?

The Eddy in Boston is a state-of-the-art building in East Boston and it's proof that apartments can be both beautiful and good for the environment.

Join us for a tour of Gerding Edlen's innovative, 250-unit residential complex with direct access to LoPresti Park, a city green space where residents and their families gather to relax, engage in water activities as well as enjoy the unmatched views of the city skyline. The Eddy has a state of the art co-generation plant on site which generates the electricity and hot water for the building.

The tour will circuit the mechanical rooms, co-gen plant, common spaces as well as the roof deck.
Speaking of the roof deck, once the tour concludes, Gerding Edlen will host an outdoors networking gathering with food, drinks, and plenty of fun!
