Urban Axes


This abandoned 7,400 sf warehouse at 2 Union Sq in Somerville was transformed by Hamilton Construction Management Corp into Boston’s first ax-throwing venue. In collaborated with Urban Axes, a Philadelphia-based chain, the Owner/Contractor worked together to develop this unique ax-throwing entertainment themed space.

Renovations included a roof replacement, new HVAC, electrical, sprinkler and plumbing systems, renovations for accessibility and interior finishes. The façade was additionally refurbished with aluminum and glass storefront.

An agreement was undertaken with the Somerville Arts Council, to authorize the internationally acclaimed street artist Victor “Marka27” Quinonez to paint a contemporary mural on the west wall of the building. This mural represents and highlights the diversity of the communities in Somerville MA.
