South End Projects
Hacin has long called the South End its home. Before the neighborhood’s celebrated rebirth in the mid-2000s, David Hacin lived and worked along the Washington Street corridor, designing and building some of the neighborhood’s most prominent and well-respected addresses. Nearly two decades later, the firm’s extensive body of work includes townhouses and historic renovations, restaurants, a public park, a community garden, hundreds of housing units across the spectrum of affordable and luxury, and a non-profit headquarters. Was this collection of projects part of a grand Master Plan? No, however, as David grew invested and developed relationships in his adopted neighborhood, projects began to materialize. As our team and portfolio grew, Hacin demonstrated a commitment to the community and, in turn, earned the trust of our neighbors. With each subsequent design challenge, we embraced the belief that every urban project, large or small, impacts the public realm and contributes to the success of the neighborhood. Whether by choice or by luck (or perhaps a combination of both), our body of work has made a palpable impact on our South End neighborhood and the City of Boston.
