The Seaport District
The Seaport District is the hottest area in Boston and one of the highest demanded for real estate. The Seaport is a new area basically created from scratch and was mostly composed of parking lots and vacant warehouses. It wasn’t until 2010 when Former Mayer Thomas Menino launched a plan was to take approximately 1,000 acres of underdeveloped land on South Boston’s waterfront and create a “work/live/play” environment designed to attract entrepreneurs and foster innovation within the city’s technology community, called “the Boston Waterfront Innovation District.” The Seaport District did have an influx of startup companies but more importantly has become the destination for industry leading corporations, such as GE, PwC, Reebok, Vertex Pharmaceuticals and Amazon.
Large corporations relocation into the Seaport has lead to major commercial development. The Seaport is now almost fully developed and is becoming more and more vibrant with every new residential and commercial development. These premium developments also create an abundance of new restaurants and retail.With easy access to The Financial District, The Green Way, South Station and Logan International Airport, the Seaport is in a great location and an excellent place to own real estate.
The Seaport District is thehighest demandedand one of the most expensive residential neighborhoods within Boston. Key reasons are:
- The prime waterfront location.
- It’s scarcity of available condominiums, due to the limited amount of developable land.
- It’s high quality, high-end residential developments.
