The Logan Hilton is located near the center of the airport on a highly visible and important site owned by the Massachusetts Port Authority. Like many urban locations, the site of the Logan Hilton presented numerous physical, legal, and design constraints. Carpenter worked diligently and effectively with the Massachusetts Port Authority and the project architect to produce an attractive design that functions effectively within the many limitations imposed by the site.
As the first step toward developing the Logan Hilton, Carpenter negotiated a ground lease with Massport for the hotel site. Carpenter has worked on a number of projects involving ground-leased parcels, and, in particular, has extensive experience with ground leases for projects located on publicly-owned or institutionally-owned land.
