VERTEX Attends Topping Off Ceremony at 22 Waters Street, Cambridge, MA

July 11, 2014

The final steel beam was signed and hoisted at 11:30 AM Tuesday during the Topping Off Ceremony for Zinc at 22 Water Street, the newest luxury residential apartment tower in East Cambridge. VERTEX’s Jaron Frieden and Frank Calandra were in attendance alongside many others who were involved in the development of the property.

During the event, Ms. Adelaide Grady, Wood Partners Director of Development Boston stated, “The team at 22 Water Street in Cambridge has been wonderful to work with and we are so proud of this development and furthering the revitalization in Cambridge.  VERTEX has been an integral part of the success of this project due to their exceptional expertise, can do attitude and constant sense of urgency.” 

In attendance were Jaron Frieden, VERTEX – Vice President, Adelaide Grady, Wood Partners – Director of Development Boston, Mark Theriault, Wood Partners – Director of Construction Northeast Region Wood Partners, Frank Calandra, LSP, VERTEX – Senior Project Manager and Rick Dickason, Wood Partners – Director of Northeast Region.
