Art, innovation, culture, and community converge in Boston Seaport, creating a vibrant framework for a rapidly developing district poised to become a best-in-class neighborhood of local and national renown. Overseen by WS Development, the evolution is remarkable: 7 million square feet of mixed-used development is planned, spanning 20 city blocks and anchored by over 1.1 million square feet of retail space.
Often dubbed Boston’s “Innovation” district or even “the Silicon Valley of the East”, Seaport has quickly become home to a fleet of technology, creative economy, and life sciences companies which define the character of the neighborhood. With Boston emerging as a leader in the digital economy Seaport is primed to become the nation’s next Hub for global organizations and start-ups.
Combining elevated retail and dining, along with public art and innovative placemaking, Boston Seaport is rapidly establishing itself as a modern urban and cultural center. The project is just over 30% completed, with fine dining and sought-after retail experiences already available. Seaport now keeps company with a collection of local and established brands including Away, Outdoor Voices, Warby Parker Equinox and more. Food options are plentiful from the recently-opened Taiyaki NYC through to Fuku, Shake Shack, La Colombe, ByChloe, Sweetgreen and more.
Activated year round, the WS team also engages countless Bostonians through innovative placemaking programs year round from retail pop-up The Current to the launch of a public art corridor spanning four city blocks by Spanish contemporary artist Okuda San Miguel and more. But the best is yet to come, with major announcements on the immediate horizon.
We look forward to walking you through this incredible transformation. In the meantime, I’m happy to answer any questions you may have!
