A reinforced-concrete cold storage warehouse has recently been completed in Boston for the Quincy Market Cold Storage & Warehouse Co. This building is designed for butter and beef storage and is located on T Wharf where there are ample facilitities for unloading directly from steamers, railroad cars or teams. The building is 140 x 152 ft. in plan by 118 ft. high, and contains eleven stories together with a basement, forming a unit that will be duplicated in the future, as the business may require, the foundations for the next unit having already been put in place.
