The conceptual design process for the Schrafft’s City Center blows my mind to think back on. I started at CBT in April of 2014 and shortly thereafter cooked up the initial candy concept for the lobby, bold and playful Confectionary Contemporary mixed with a Factory / Industrial vibe.
The history Schrafft’s Candy Factory was a fixture in the Charlestown landscape and a wonderful local employer that sadly closed its doors in the late 1970s. The late Mr. Flatley bought the building and surrounding land and converted it into a first class office building in 1984. CBT along with The Flately Company has undertaken the second transformation of this incredible site.
Story: Riverworks is currently a multi-tenant office building on the banks of the Charles River. It was originally a wool and textiles factory. The desirable brick and beam construction lends itself to the classic but quirky “ode to the Sheep.”
