111 Harbor Way: Boston Seaport Redevelopement

Harbor Way, scheduled for completion in 2024, promises to be the very definition of connection, inspiration, and sustainability within the Seaport District.  The design for Harbor Way is a collaboration of three very distinct yet unique groups – WS Development, leading land architect James Corner Field Operations, and world-renowned design consultants Pentagram. The design of Harbor Way has been done so in a way that captures New England’s coast, forestry, and traditional wooden boardwalks.

A lot is on the schedule for this one-third-mile pedestrian promenade. Already unveiled in October 2021, a new green space named The Rocks at Harbor Way offers a memorable open space that the entire city will be able to enjoy. Coming in 2022. Designed by Gensler, this office space will become the home of Amazon and will also provide an additional 60,000 square feet of space for neighborhood retail and public works of art.

The Rocks at Harbor Way is named after 250,000+ pounds of locally sourced boulders that are formally known as glacial erratics and will be located at the heart of Harbor Way. The area will also provide access to “The Singing Trees,” powered by PlantWave, and a 22-foot long community table.

Summer Steps is the creation that will connect Harbor Way to Summer Street and the Boston Convention & Exhibition Center. Summer Steps is slated for completion in 2023 and will be a new stair and boardwalk feature for the area.

Also, in 2023, Harbor Way Ice Rink for the Snowport season will debut. Foundation Medicine will also find its home within Harbor Way at 400 Summer Street. The building is designed by Morris Adjmi and will include 30,000 square feet of additional neighborhood retail use, bringing the building’s total to 625,000 square feet.

Rounding out the completion of Harbor Way in 2024 will be One Boston Wharf, designed by Henning Larson. One Boston Wharf will be a 17-story mixed-use building totaling 707,000 square feet, and will be the eventual home of Amazon’s office and will also be Boston’s largest zero-carbon office. Once completed, Harbor Way will be the link between Summer Street and the waterfront, providing various pedestrian activities, office buildings, and mixed-use areas for the city’s patrons to enjoy.

Developer Proposes 1.7 Million-Square-Foot Development on Charlestown's Waterfront

425 Medford Street, Charlestown, MA by NELSON Worldwide

There is a new property to pay attention to in the coming months – 425 Medford Street in Charlestown. The former Domino Sugar refinery site on Mystic River is being proposed as a 21-acre mixed-use space by the Braintree-based real estate company, The Flatley Co., the owner of the nearby Schrafft Center. The Schrafft Center is a former candy factory, best known for the prominent clocktower.

For years now, residents have dealt with restricted public access to the waterfront since the refinery opened decades ago (the early 1960s). It was the first new refinery in the United States since 1935. When it was built, it leveled Dewey Beach, which had been a popular place for swimming and swim races. The refinery ultimately closed in 1988, and The Flatley Co. bought the parcel and the surrounding area in 1994. It is listed as “Marine Park Limited Partnership” on their website.

Along with the mixed-use space, The Flatley Co. is proposing a 22-foot high flood barrier, which will be built to standards to prevent future coastal flooding. This barrier will be built along the newly proposed three-quarter-mile expanse along the Mystic River, including an extension of the Boston Harborwalk, parks, recreational areas, public dock, launch areas for boats or kayaks, and public lookout spots.

Charlestown is one of the oldest neighborhoods in Boston. A notable part of this area is The Freedom Trail. The Freedom Trail is lined with brick townhouses and clapboard triple-decker and leads to the Bunker Hill Monument.  Charlestown Navy Yard is also home to the 1797 U.S.S. Constitution and its namesake museum. It is also only a short trip from Downtown Boston, so getting to or from the area is easy.

East Boston is just across the Boston Harbor from Charlestown. Elevated is Boston’s premier real estate agency, servicing all of the neighborhoods in the area. Some of the up-and-coming neighborhoods around Boston have the best luxury condos and apartments available, and Elevated is your connection to all of these properties.

    Former L Street Station to Become New Mixed-Use Space Featuring Offices, Restaurants, Housing, & More

    776 Summer Street, Boston, MA, 02127

    The former L Street Station is getting a much-needed facelift from Hilco Redevelopment Partners (HRP). The 15.2-acre site was home to a coal-fired power plant that provided power to Boston from 1898 until it was decommissioned in 2006. HRP acquired this site in 2016 and began above-grade remediation of some of the existing structures – bringing in the South Boston community, city officials, neighborhood representatives, and other stakeholders to create a potential redevelopment plan for the space.

    In January 2021, HRP’s plan was approved by the Board of the Boston Planning and Development Agency unanimously. The project calls for a redevelopment of the 1.68 million square foot area into a mixed-use space. The area will include 860,000 square feet of life science and office space, 636 residential units, a 240-key hotel, and 95,000 square feet of retail and cultural space. This is paired with an additional 5.7 acres of public outdoor space as well as a 2.5-acre park on the waterfront.

    The address of the development is located at 776 Summer Street in South Boston. The area is best known for its restaurants, bars, culture, characters, and amazing parks.  HRP’s L Station development will be a nice addition to the South Boston area, creating housing opportunities and additional jobs once completed. It is ideally located across the Reserved Channel from the Seaport District – another up-and-coming Boston neighborhood. 776 Summer Street’s location puts it approximately one mile from South Station and quick access to I-90/I-93, as well as Logan International Airport.

    Construction will begin soon on this mixed-use space, and once pre-leasing on the 636 residential units begins, they will not last long. You will want to get on the list as soon as possible. Elevated is your premier real estate connection to South Boston and the other surrounding areas.

          A New Restaurant Makes Its Way to Seaport: Coquette

          Coquette in Boston

          Coquette, 450 Summer Street, Seaport District, Boston

          Boston’s Seaport neighborhood is home to some high-profile developments that range from residential to retail to dining establishments. This exclusive harborfront neighborhood does not disappoint with fine dining, party venues, magnificent views of the skyline from the Harborwalk, and new high-rise luxury condominiums. For those living in the neighborhood, there is a new restaurant in town that doesn’t march to the same beat as others in the area.

          Meet Coquette. Coquette is a restaurant inspired by the southwestern parts of France and the Basque country and is being made available by an area hospitality powerhouse – COJE (Chris Jamison). Coquette will be joining the line of restaurants brought to Boston by COJE, including Lolita, Mariel, Yvonnes, and Ruka.

          The interior of Coquette doesn’t disappoint, featuring street art and murals that recreate Alphonse Mucha’s The Seasons. There is a 32-seat bar that opens up into the café style dining room, where guests get a glimpse of the Boston Convention and Exhibition Center, and sparkling red chandeliers hang overhead in the main dining area.

          Jamison is quoted on Boston.com, stating, “What we tried to do here was create our version of what a brasserie would feel like on the coast of France or the Basque region of Spain. I think it’s easy to end up putting a space together that feels very serious, very formal, but we always want it to be a little bit louder, a little bit more fun, a little bit more colorful.”

          COJE’s culinary director Tom Berry has created an equally enticing menu for the establishment. The menu offers raw bar dishes such as “beach dip,” a selection of surf clam, capers, herbs de Provence, and Neufchatel cheese served with waffle chips; shellfish towers; colossal shrimp cocktail; and other tasty appetizers sure to appeal to the masses.

          Coquette was no exception in tradition with the hospitality powerhouse’s signature shareable feasts, offering baked lobster and other savory dishes that compliment the establishment and the geography. Coquette’s pastry chef, Mai Nguyen, brings the menu full circle by offering decadent dessert options, including phyllo dough filled with almond cream, green apples, and Armagnac; tres leches-style vanilla sponge cake; and rum baba beignets.

          You can find Coquette at 450 Summer St. in Boston – open daily from 4 p.m. to 2 a.m. Lunch and brunch are soon to be offered, and reservations are greatly encouraged at this time.
