South Boston Seaport=Luxury Living

The Boston Herald reported today that Developer John Drew will start building his long-delayed Waterside Place project on the South Boston waterfront later this month.
The $120 million tower at the corner of Congress and D streets will add 236 luxury apartments and possibly a pharmacy to the growing neighborhood. A follow-up phase is expected to bring a supermarket.
The project won city approval in 2007, but was shelved during the Great Recession and later revised. Drew was a pioneer in the area, building the World Trade Center and the Seaport Hotel with investor Fidelity Investments between the mid-1980s and early 2000s.

There are 27 projects in the South Boston area that have board approval from the BRA. These projects range from residential condominiums, apartments, office and retail space. South Boston's Seaport or Innovative District is turning into the place to be and to be seen. After a long visionary it is finally coming together and will prove to be one of the best places to live and to visit in the city of Boston.
