The company nurtures that feeling of camaraderie as it builds Bleu Ciel Tower, a 33-story luxury condominium project in the district of HARWOOD in Dallas. Hunt started in 2015 and expects to be finished by August 2017.

Western BuildersWestern Builders has stood out through exceptional performance on wood-frame housing and in other sectors in New England.  
By Eric Slack 

For more than 40 years, Western Builders has earned a reputation in New England for the strength of its preconstruction, general contracting and construction management services. Founded in 1975 as a business unit of The O’Connell Companies, Western Builders specializes in wood-frame structures, and working with academic, senior housing and healthcare clients. 

“Western celebrated its 40th anniversary last year, and we established ourselves in this region because of our ability to get larger wood-frame projects done,” President Chris Boino says. “We’ve evolved as needed over time to get into different market sectors and work with different materials, but we’ve seen a return to wood-frame projects thanks to advances in engineered wood products and interest in sustainability and LEED certification.”

Seattle has long been the largest city in the state of Washington, and it shows no signs of slowing down. Andersen Construction is now at work on Kinects, a project that will connect the city’s South Lake Union neighborhood with the downtown area, Project Manager Yates Osborn says.

“[Kinects will fill] a gap in the Seattle landscape,” he says, noting that the project consists of a 41-story apartment tower. Andersen Construction serves as the general contractor on the $110 million project for developer Security Properties.

When finished, Kinects will feature 357 high-end living units that range from studio apartments to two-bedroom penthouses that span approximately 1,700 square feet. “That’s what people seem to want these days,” Osborn observes.

Kinects also will be set apart by features such as an indoor pool on its top floor “enclosed with full-height vision glass on three sides,” he says. The tower also will have outdoor terraces on its sixth and 41st floors.

This renaissance included the construction of Fox One, a 29-story condominium tower that was completed last year. Now, the two firms are at work on Fox Two, “which is the sibling tower to Fox One,” he says, noting that the $48 million structure will stand 34 stories with 169 condo suites when finished next fall.
