seaport office space in Boston at night

Seaport office space at 281 Summer St.

For a 400 year old city, we are experiencing record growth with billions being invested into new office, residential, and retail projects in areas of the city that were previously left for dirt lots or industrial space., offers some historical perspective on the alternation and modernization of the hub over just the past decade:

“A decade ago, the waterfront—just across Fort Point Channel from the downtown Financial District—was still seen as the home of a languishing commercial port. Now the Seaport, aka the Innovation District, has new infrastructure, new buildings like Hanover’s (above), and a flock of cranes bringing more product online. Skanska is building a new HQ for PwC; State Street recently completed its relo into Channel Center; The Drew Co is quickly leasing apartments at Waterside Place; and The Fallon Co is selling super luxury condos on Fan Pier. The Seaport has come alive, Douglass says, with spectacular views and a condo market that’s heating up.”
