Developer Cottonwood Management officially broke ground on June 13 on a 1.33 million-square-foot Seaport District development that it is calling Echelon Seaport.
The three-building project is set to have 733 apartments and condos. Some 448 of those will be condos spread over two towers. According to the Globe’s Tim Logan, that block will constitute the largest single amount of for-sale housing in the neighborhood.
A third tower will have 285 apartments. The buildings could stretch as high as 21 floors.
Echelon Seaport will include a 19,000-square-foot landscaped plaza accessible to the public and 125,000 square feet of restaurants and retail over two levels. There will also be several hundred parking spaces as well. All totaled, it will unfold over 3.5 acres of very, very valuable land at B Street and Seaport Boulevard.
Los Angeles-based Cottonwood hopes to wrap construction in 2020, and to open a sales office for the condos before the end of the year.
Stay tuned for rents and prices. If other Seaport developments are any indication, they will be hefty.
