Area Information
 


Over the past 150 years, the Seaport has undergone a series of transformations. It’s evolved from a muddy spot in Boston Harbor (much of it was covered by water until the late 1800s), to a thriving shipping area that in the early part of the 20th century received raw materials like wool and leather for local textile factories, to a decrepit no-man’s land of parking lots and abandoned warehouses in the mid-1900s, to its most recent iteration: a hotbed of construction and urban infill. Today, cranes seem to rise every other week, erecting office buildings, condominiums, retail stores, and restaurants. And those amenities, coupled with the location — across from downtown, right off the highway, and just a short T ride to the airport — have made the Seaport a prime spot for growth.
