The Hamilton Company announced that it has successfully permitted 8
Winter Street in Boston, one of the four corners of Downtown Crossing,
and will transform the existing 50,000 square foot office building into
the area’s first moderate rate apartment high rise.

District and are convinced that this additional housing will add
vibrancy to the neighborhood,” stated Carl Valeri, President of the
Hamilton Construction Management Corporation, a subsidiary of The
Hamilton Company, has begun interior demolition of the 12 story
building. Upon completion, the first floor retail space will remain
intact with 40 1-bedroom units and 8-studios added to the Downtown

appliances and other modern conveniences.
“Winter Street is one of New England’s most important destinations We
welcome the addition of affordable housing being made available to new
residents,” commented Rosemarie Sansone, President, Downtown Boston
