Gateway Center

DDR Corp.

Located just outside Boston, Gateway Center is the largest urban retail development of a brownfield site in the Commonwealth of Massachusetts. The 90-acre redevelopment site started as little more than a massive 650,000-cubic-yard pile of earth.

Fill was used to build the site six to 12 feet above existing ground. Geotechnical specialists were brought in, and a process called surcharging was used to build pads above a marker layer one foot below the existing grade.
