This and the Envoy are the only Seaport construction sites I feel positive about.

BeeLine, perfect beginning to a new thread, from pics of what looks like final renderings, to pics of the site, to the beginning of construction pictures. Thanks!

Top rendering and following renders do not match. I am not sure where this one is going to land. Look pretty good though. I am hopeful.

Here's hoping they take everything good about the Watermark over here in Cambridge, and continue to improve on it. I do enjoy the varied height we are starting to see between these and the Envoy. I'm also hopeful that the number of retail and dining being added will end up being a few less stars in some of these. A nice mix should start developing in the area.

It definitely has the potential to look good. But it also has potential to be a clone of Waterside Place...

Re: Watermark Seaport (parcel K Seaport Sq.)/85 Seaport Blvd @ Seaport Sq./Seaport

It's amazing to see all this progress. When I left Boston in the fall of 2011, I believe the only new seaport building that had broken ground/been completed was 4 Marina Park and Jimmy's Harborside. Now how many are there U/C and completed? 8-10? I'll be visiting home in 5 weeks, and I'm pretty excited to see all this new stuff.

Nice textures. I'm not as much a fan of the speckled/pockmarked appearance but this will look alright.

Cores at ground level for the tower.




Work has begun on the west building. Sheet pilings in place and earth movers starting to work the site.

There were a number of owner requested changes that held it up.
