Best Places to Watch the Boston Fireworks

People Watching Fireworks Show

If you are anything like us, you are anxiously awaiting the Boston Pops Fireworks Spectacular on July 4th. But where should you watch them from? Read on to see where our top 3 spots to catch the fireworks show this July 4th in the Boston area are. Fireworks begin at 10:30 pm on July 4th.

Charles River Esplanade

Although likely to be crowded, one of the best vantage points is from the Charles River Esplanade. We suggest catching the show from the Cambridge side if you’re looking for a little bit more room to spread out. 

Wrights Tower

While we don’t condone scaling the tower itself, this vantage point in Medford gives a breathtaking view of Boston’s skyline with the fireworks above it. 

Wollaston Beach

Pull up a chair on Wollaston Beach in Quincy and look northward to see the fireworks show a few miles away.

    Winthrop Center Construction Update

    Winthrop Center

    Breaking ground in October of 2018, Winthrop Center is the largest investment for a single project in Boston. The 1.3 million square feet, 53 story, 500 unit luxury condo building – which will also offer office space – is expected to be ready for occupancy in 2022. Winthrop Center will be Platinum LEED Certified upon completion which will reduce energy consumption and carbon emissions by as much as 80% compared to a standard building of its size.

    During its initial planning phases, developers had planned a “Great Hall” to be lined with retail storefronts and restaurants. Since breaking ground the “Great Hall” has been revamped to connect Devonshire and Federal streets and has been dubbed “The Connector”. According to developers, “The Connector” is modeled after Boston’s numerous college campuses that are laid out to encourage spontaneous interactions with the people you see on a regular basis but don’t necessarily know. “The Connector” features large TV screens, removable furniture, and will act as a lobby most of the time but will be available for events.

      Penthouse at 100 A Street Hits Market for Record Asking Price of $5,250,000

       

      The past year in the South Boston luxury condo market has been record setting with 3 sales over $2,000,000 and 22 sales topping $1,500,000. However, the newly listed Penthouse at 100 A Street, a boutique 8 unit new construction condo development, is attempting to shatter the previous record of $2,150,000 set in early 2018 by a condo on Farragut Rd. With an asking price of $5,250,000, Unit PH boasts $3800+ square feet of living area, 4 bedrooms, 3.5 bathrooms, private elevator entry, 2 garage parking spaces and a massive roof terrace. The Penthouse will also have Wolf, Sub Zero and Asko appliances along with smart home technology. At nearly $1,381 per square foot, the Penthouse would crush the previous South Boston record by over $3,100,000. 100 A could potentially set two South Boston condo sales records with another 2 bedroom unit under agreement in the building at $2,200,000. Ideally located at the former home of My Diner a short distance from Boston's thriving Seaport and next to other successful luxury condo developments Port 45 and 14 West Broadway, 100 A Street counts location as one of its most valuable attributes.
