Meh. Something like trader Joe's would attract not just seaport residents but Southie ones too.

Trader Joe's is about the right scale for Seaport. I don't think it qualifies as a supermarket. They are pretty dense inside also, so survive in high rent districts.

Right. But a place holder for which project? I do not remember anything ever mentioned for that lot...

It was a place holder in the 100 Acres Master Plan. Not a current project, but a view of what could be.

There's a TJ's going into 13,000 square feet in Allston, in that new apartment building over by Harvard Stadium.

You'd think WS could find 13K square feet for them in Seaport Square somewhere, and you'd think it would do tremendous business.

Re: Seaport Parcels M1-M2 | Seaport Sq. | Seaport

Thanks.

I'm so confused by this project. Is there underground parking? Did they already build it?

They seem to have been doing site prep for half a year but I don't know what they were doing.

John, there will be underground parking. No the parking has not been built yet. They are putting in slurry walls currently. Once that is completed then they should start diging out the underground parking/basement area.

This one also has to dodge the Silver Line tunnel, so the underground works ought to be extra interesting.

Hard to believe this is an 900 Million Project! Maybe its the cost of the parking. IDK

What had they been doing for the 6 months before the "groundbreaking"? If they are doing slurry walls now, what were they doing the last 6 months or so?

It is pretty enormous. But, yeah, it's 800-something units. So they'll be expensive.

Lot's of retail space to be leased as well.
Not all costs to be defrayed by the 800 units.

Very active site now. Slurry walls going in along the West/S West side of the site.



Looking SE along the North side of the Silver Line tunnel.





Looking East along Seaport Blvd.

Mods could we get Echelon add to the thread title?

Slurry wall action in the SE corner of the site.

You think this development will break records for the number of tower cranes used for a single project in the city?
