On the South Boston waterfront, just seconds from downtown, lies the city’s most exciting new neighborhood, the Seaport District. This redeveloped corner of the city has been transitioning in recent years into a bustling center of commerce full of luxury retail outlets, high-end dining and entertainment options, and a stunning selection of Boston’s most sought-after apartments and condominiums.
The Seaport District is now home to some of Boston’s most desired luxury properties and is thus becoming a prime location for the city’s most prominent residents. In this post, we’ll introduce some of the best amenities Seaport has to offer, so you can get an idea of the neighborhood before contacting our team at Atlas Properties to visit these properties in person.
“The Seaport Project” by WS Development
Seaport did not happen by chance; it is the product of a carefully-designed urban redevelopment plan known as “The Seaport Project.” An undertaking of WS Development, this cutting-edge project encompasses nearly 7 million sq. ft. of mixed-use properties spanning 20 city blocks.
In the heart of the Seaport District, luxury apartments and condominiums sit atop multi-level retail centers, lined with terraces and ample outdoor seating. With more than a quarter of the retail outlets currently up-and-running, and the remaining scheduled to open in the next two years, Seaport is soon to be a high-energy hub for shopping and entertainment in Boston.
Seaport boasts more than 1.1 million sq. ft. of highly-coveted retail space. Bonobos, Filson, and L.L. Bean, are just a few of the notable names you can find by One Seaport, between Seaport Blvd. and Courthouse Square. 88 Seaport, 121 Seaport, and Harbor Square are also distinct retail centers nestled in the streets of the district, each with its own unique vibe and amenities.
Dotted throughout the various retail strips within Seaport are a wealth of exceptional dining venues. Caffè Nero and Sweetgreen are two popular destinations for locals, while Menton, Del Frisco’s Double Eagle Steakhouse, and Row 34 offer diverse fine dining options as well.
Some of the more notable exclusive dining choices for Seaport’s top residents include Mastro’s Ocean Club, located on the waterfront at 22 Liberty, and Chickadee, a trendy Mediterranean-inspired restaurant situated inside Boston’s Innovation and Design Building in Seaport. For those looking to venture outside of the city, Lola 41 in Nantucket is one of the finest dining options in all of New England and a popular destination for Boston’s elite.
For residents and employees of the Seaport District, entertainment is bountiful. Blue Hills Bank Pavilion is one of Boston’s most popular outdoor amphitheaters, bringing top-tier artists to Seaport’s waterfront. For those looking to catch a movie, ShowPlace ICON at 60 Seaport Blvd. is the neighborhood’s best movie venue.
Seaport Common is a pleasant public area near the harbor where you can find local fitness classes gathering, as well as a speaker series and seasonal farmers markets. Nearby sits District Hall, the first public innovation center in the nation, while local favorites including King’s Bowling, Equinox Sports Club, and The Grand Nightclub, demonstrating that Seaport District has something for everyone.
Another great amenity available to Seaport residents is hosted by Boston Harbor Cruises. Whether you’re taking the Provincetown Ferry to visit Cape Cod or need to catch the Water Taxi when traffic has you in a bind, Boston Harbor Cruises makes it convenient to get where you need to go.
