All About the Benjamin at Seaport Square; Vacation Rentals

SEAPORT—Following its official groundbreaking this morning, more details are out on the titanic One Seaport Square, including the names of its composite towers: "Plans include a total of 832 units, with 354 distinctive apartment homes in The Benjamin, ranging from studios to three-bedrooms, and 458 modern apartment homes in VIA, ranging from studios to innovation units to three-bedrooms." The complex's retail will include a ShowPlace ICON movie theater, an Equinox gym and Kings Bowl bowling alley. [Curbed Boston; previously]
HUB-WIDE—David Bates unpacks the murky world of short-term condo rentals: "An advertisement to rent a Boston condominium for a vacation rental never shows photos of the front of the building: it's a mystery. The precise location of the building also is undisclosed: it's an enigma. Who owns the condo is a riddle. If Boston has a black market for real estate, this could be it." [Bates]
