      Echelon Seaport: The Building

      Echelon Seaport, one of the most highly anticipated mixed-use developments in Boston's history, is set to begin pre-sales at the beginning of 2018.  Featuring 448 luxury condos spread across two towers and 21 stories, Echelon Seaport is set to become the quintessential live/work/play destination on Boston's waterfront. Unlike its predecessors, 22 Liberty, 50 Liberty and Pier 4 which have ground floor restaurants, Echelon Seaport will feature 125,000+ square feet of mixed-use retail and restaurant space throughout its first two floors.  There will also be a 19,000 square foot landscaped plaza within the confines of the Echelon Seaport development which will provide residents and the general public with an array of shopping, eating and drinking options steps from Boston Harbor.  Ideally located across Seaport Boulevard from Fan Pier and the waterfront, Echelon Seaport is going to bring a new level of shopping and dining experiences to residents and visitors alike.  With a mix of studio, 1 bedroom, 2 bedroom, 3 bedroom and Penthouse units, Echelon will have a floor plan that fits every buyers needs.  Prices are expected to start around $1,000,000.  Echelon will have a vast array of luxury amenities including a resort-style pool with cabanas, fitness center, courtyard, concierge services, 24/7 security, garage parking and plenty of outdoor spaces for entertaining.  

      Echelon Pre-Sales: Buy Early

      Echelon will begin pre-sales at the beginning of 2018 and although it is currently a hole in the ground, buying early is almost always the smart move, especially in the Seaport.  Both 22 Liberty and 50 Liberty sold out well before completion.  Early buyers at 22 Liberty saw the value of their unit increase, sometimes by hundreds of thousands of dollars, by the time they closed on the unit. When it comes to buying pre-construction, the buyers that are first in tend to reap the benefits of market appreciation and high demand for luxury condos, especially in the thriving Seaport neighborhood.  At Elevated, we specialize in advising clients on pre-construction purchases months or even years before building completion.  Our clients have purchased at all of the major buildings in the Seaport including 22 Liberty, 50 Liberty and Pier 4. Contact Elevated today to be added to our VIP Buyer List for Echelon Seaport.  We look forward to hearing from you!

      The Seaport

      The Seaport in Boston, Massachusetts has reshaped the luxury waterfront landscape in Boston over the past 5 years. With the advent of the game-changing Fan Pier, which brought the area ultra-luxury condo developments 22 Liberty and 50 Liberty, the residential look of the Seaport has forever changed. Fan Pier also boasts Vertex Pharmaceutical’s world headquarters as well as popular restaurants Strega Waterfront, Mastro’s Steakhouse and Lola 42 directly from Nantucket. The Seaport’s ultra-luxury condo boom has continued with Pier 4, which is currently setting price per square foot records in Boston and is slated for completion by the end of 2018.  WS Development, one of the groups associated with Echelon Seaport, also built the amenity-filled VIA and Benjamin, luxury rental buildings. The VIA and Benjamin house some of Boston's hottest restaurants and nightlife establishments including Scorpion Bar, Tuscan Kitchen, The Grand and a brand new Showcase Icon Cinema. If you are looking to live on the water and in the lap of luxury, the Seaport has you covered. The neighborhood is a walk from Downtown, Fanueil Hall and the North End.

      The Best Restaurants In The Boston Seaport

      THE BEST RESTAURANTS IN THE BOSTON SEAPORT

      With so many great dining options in Boston’s Seaport, it can be a challenge determining the best places to grab a bite.  The list below breaks down your top options by the type of experience you are looking for and provides our recommendations for the best spots to eat.    

          

      1. The Best Restaurant to Take a Date: Strega Waterfront

      The Varano Group’s top notch Italian eatery with waterfront views and a great patio for the nicer weather.  The Seaport's Strega Waterfront offers a spectacular wine list paired with hearty authentic Italian food.  The menu also offers lighter fare (for earlier on in the dating game) and an intimate bar area with music just loud enough to still allow for conversation.

       

      2. The Best Restaurant to Grab a Pie: Babbo

      Occupying 8,700 square feet in the Fan Pier area of the Seaport, this wood-fired pizzeria offers great atmosphere and even better food.  Three different marble topped bars provide plenty of space to meet for a drink while you decide which of the many Neopolitan-style pizzas you plan to try.

       

      3. The Best Restaurant for Apps and Drinks: Envoy’s Lookout Rooftop

      This lounge has incredible views of the city while offering amazing craft cocktails featuring “small-batch distilleries, rock-star brewers and single vineyard labels.”  The food rivals the top-notch drink selection, so whether it’s a small group or a larger after work crowd, Lookout Rooftop is where you want to be.  

       

      4.  The Best Restaurant for BBQ: The Smoke Shop Seaport

      World BBQ Champion Chef Andy Husbands takes his Kendall Square concept and brings it to The Seaport in his newest endeavor.  With all of your favorite competition style BBQ platters and over 200 American whiskeys offered, The Smoke Shop is an essential stop.  

       

      5.  The Best Restaurant for Steak: Del Frisco’s Double Eagle Steakhouse

      Located on Liberty Wharf with spectacular harbor views, the ambience is set for a great meal and Del Frisco’s delivers.   If you are in the mood to indulge and most likely over-eat, this is your spot.  Forget The Seaport, this could be the best steak in all of Boston.
