Within walking distance of Faneuil Hall—one of Boston’s oldest landmarks—is its newest: the InterContinental Boston, a waterfront hotel and residential complex. Its 22-story blue glass façade curves skyward, mimicking the profile of sailing boats in the harbour it overlooks and reflects.

Given the InterContinental Boston’s function and location, both exterior and interior doorways must withstand high traffic volume—residents and hotel guests, conventioners, diners, and strollers enjoying HarborWalk create constant foot traffic day and night.
The high traffic volume called for extremely durable and reliable door hardware, while the luxury setting required pleasing aesthetics to complement and enhance the hotel décor. Specifiers chose dormakaba Architectural Hardware to meet these demanding requirements.
