Big and Beautiful – Terra Cotta Blocks Made for Northeastern University

Fabrication of the massive blocks that will adorn Northeastern University’s Hastings Building in Boston, Massachusetts is finishing and the first crates are packed for shipping. This project features some of the largest block we’ve ever made at Boston Valley.

The project began when Northeastern University bought the Hastings Building from the local YMCA with plans to turn it into student housing.
