85 Seaport Blvd
Big things are happening in Boston's Seaport District. Of the many new condo and apartment developments that have been springing up in the neighborhood, Watermark Seaport is perhaps the most highly anticipated. Originally slated to start leasing in Fall 2015, it now appears that the development won't "open for business" until January 2016. If you'll be in the market for a new home at that time, Boston City Properties can help. We've been keeping our eye on the progress of this development from the beginning, so check back here often to stay up to date.
In the meantime, here's what we know. This 350-unit development is located at 85 Seaport Boulevard. Consisting of two buildings, its location in the center of Seaport Square makes it a convenient and desirable place to live. The development offers studio, one-bedroom, two-bedroom and three-bedroom apartments. There are also micro apartments, which have exploded in popularity in Boston in recent years. Known as Innovation Residences, they are every bit as luxurious as the larger apartments and lofts that are also found at this development.
We haven't seen such an impressive amenities package in some time. Considering how competitive Boston's apartment market is, that's saying a lot. Indeed, the two buildings have been designed with discerning city dwellers in mind.
