Described as one of the most significant and coveted waterfront sites on the East Coast, Bostons Fan Pier has been a driving force behind the massive change that has swept through the Seaport District.
No area of Boston has been more affected by the citys recent building boom than the Seaport District. Once a huge swath of land, filled with loading docks and parking lots, many local Bostonians once considered this neighborhood to be an industrial wasteland. That all changed in 1998 with the construction of the Moakley Courthouse. Since then, the Seaport District has been transformed into one of Bostons biggest up-and-coming hot spots. Home to Bostons World Trade Center and the new Convention Center, the district features wide pedestrian-friendly sidewalks, new parks and a harbor walk. New buildings are springing up in the Seaport District more than in any other part of the city. These new buildings are home to hotels, luxury apartments and five-star restaurants.
The Fan Pier is a multi-million dollar development in the heart of it all, featuring restaurants, shops and office space with views of Boston Harbor. The 21-acre project spans nine blocks of the Seaport District. Built on old parking lots, the modern buildings are surrounded by beautiful landscaping and well-lit walkways. There is also a new cove marina equipped with docks to accommodate boat owners.
With most of the development finished, the final two buildings are currently under construction. Named Twenty Two Liberty, these two 14-story residential buildings will be made entirely out of glass and consist of luxury condos. Built on the waterfront, the condo units will feature floor-to-ceiling windows and private decks overlooking the harbor.
The complex will offer studios and 1-3 bedroom condos. The price range per unit is said to be between $900,000 to $4 million.
