Dena Diorio, the county manager, said in a statement that the county is excited to be working with Beacon to bring a new county park to South End and Wilmore. Wilmore Centennial Park will include open grass areas, walkways and landscaping.
This is the third project that Beacon has developed with Furman, who is currently developing micro-apartments with Ascent Real Estate Capital at The RailYard site. Beacon and Furman also collaborated on 1616 Center, a boutique office building on Camden Road that was one of the first substantial commercial projects in South End in this development cycle. Today, millions of square feet of office space are under construction in the South End area, including future offices for a large Lowe’s tech hub and LendingTree’s headquarters.
