Massachusetts Fallen Heroes Memorial

Public Realm & Cultural
About Massachusetts Fallen Heroes Memorial

It began with an idea that was walked into our offices by the steadfast members of the Mass Fallen Heroes organization in 2014. Their “Simple but important goal” to conceive, finance and construct a permanent public tribute that would pay honor to the Commonwealth’s brave servicemen and women who died while serving our grateful Nation since September 11, 2001.  In the following months, on land donated by BGI and our Seaport Square partners at Morgan Stanley and WS Development, we worked diligently with Massachusetts Fallen Heroes to create The Mass Fallen Heroes Memorial. The obelisk was designed by artist James Carpenter and the surrounding landscape was curated by Reed Hilderbrand. The project was completed two years later and was officially dedicated on May 26, 2016.

“The Memorial is a powerful and refined beacon of light, where we welcome the Gold Star Families, as well as the general public from all over the world, to come together to reflect and honor our brave heroes. The 50 foot obelisk, the Beacon Of Honor, is a five-sided diaphanous column signifying the branches of the Service. It looms above the trees in the park and reaches for the sky. During the day, the tower continuously reflects and refracts the waterfront’s changing light. At night, its internal illumination is visible from vantage points around Downtown Boston and the Harbor.” – MassFallenHeroes.Org.

About One Lincoln Street

One Lincoln Street, now known as State Street Financial Center, is a 37-story, 1.1 million square foot office tower, located at the edge of the Financial District next to Boston’s Chinatown.

Boston Global Investors, and it’s partners at Columbia Plaza Associates, obtained the necessary permits and approvals from the City and secured equity capital from Morgan Stanley and State Teachers Pension Fund of Ohio. The joint venture broke ground in April 2000, on spec, and by the end of the year, the project was master-leased to State Street. Despite numerous changes during construction, the project opened on time and under budget in June 2003 at a cost of $350 million. In February 2004, the joint venture sold the project for $705 million.

Boston’s first commercial real estate MWBE Partnership, the joint venture at One Lincoln Street remains the largest and most successful MWBE Partnership to date. Columbia Plaza Associates was comprised of more than a dozen individual MWBE partners from the neighboring communities who participated in every step of the project from inception to completion.
