Everything you need to know about Seaport Square
With luxurious apartment buildings and beautiful ocean views, Boston’s Seaport District has been called ‘Boston’s hottest neighborhood’ for many consecutive years. Development in the Seaport is far from over, along with more residential and corporate real estate, the Seaport is due to receive some highly anticipated amenities with the construction of Seaport Square; here is everything you need to know:
What is it? Seaport Square is a 23-acre project consisting of 19 buildings currently in development aiming to convert vacant land and parking lots into a 24/7 urban neighborhood.
Where is it? Seaport Square will sit on the undeveloped land between The Institute of Contemporary Art and Summer Street.
What will be there? Along with contributing to the Seaport’s office and residential real estate inventory, Seaport Square will also provide neighborhood amenities like green spaces, schools, libraries, places of worship, stores, cultural spaces, and entertainment venues in the area’s 6.3 million square feet of real estate.
Who is designing it? International architectural firm Kohn Pendersen Fox Associates (KPF) designed Seaport Square’s initial master plan. Several architecture firms are collaborating in designing the area’s 19 buildings. Though the architects may vary one thing will remain consistent among the structures: a LEED Silver certification minimum.
How will it better the Seaport? Along with providing a smooth transition between the Fort Point neighborhood and the heart of the Seaport, Seaport Square will give the Seaport District a definitive retail and entertainment sector. Retail, office space, and restaurants will line Seaport Boulevard and Boston Wharf Road, giving shopping and dining enthusiasts a clear path from Fort Point’s bars and restaurants to the nightlife hotspots located near the World Trade Center.
How will I be able to get there? For those who prefer public transit, Seaport Square is only a short walk or Silver Line ride away from South Station. For those who prefer to drive, Seaport Square will have underground garage parking. Other modes of transportation include bike racks, Zipcar lots, and Hubway stations.
