Developer Cronin Development is hosting an official groundbreaking for its 22-story, 114-unit St. Regis Residences, Boston tower on October 1. Gov. Charlie Baker and Mayor Marty Walsh are expected to be the guests of honor.

The planned building at 150 Seaport Boulevard in the Seaport District is expected to open in late 2020, and will surely be one of the more distinctive additions to the Seaport and to Boston in general: The Elkus Manfredi design is meant to mimic a billowy sail.

The building will operate as an outpost of the St. Regis luxury brand, according Cronin Development. The firm reached a licensing deal with Marriott International, which is not itself involved in the development.

The late July announcement of that agreement capped a long time of back-and-forth on the plans. The Conservation Law Foundation, an environmental group, agreed in January to drop a lawsuit against the project in exchange for $13.1 million in funding for a waterfront park, a public dock, and children’s programming.

The group had opposed Cronin’s (very expensive) plans on zoning grounds because of concerns about public access to the waterfront.

As it stands now, the future condos will come with access to a suite of St. Regis-branded luxury services, including concierge and butler service, and to amenities such as a swimming pool, a spa, a health club, a library, and what the developer is calling a golf-simulation room.

Stay tuned for sales prices.
