BOSTON, October 1, 2018 –Lt. Governor Karyn Polito, Mayor Martin J. Walsh and Representative Stephen Lynch joined developer Jon Cronin today to celebrate the launch of construction on The St. Regis Residences, Boston at 150 Seaport Boulevard, a project that sets a new standard for luxury living in Boston. Team members from Elkus Manfredi Architects, John Moriarty and Joyal Capital Management participated in the celebratory events, which included the St. Regis brand’s signature champagne sabering ceremony.
Unable to attend, the governor provided a comment. “The 150 Seaport project is a great addition to Boston’s Seaport District and we are excited for its impact on the Commonwealth and City of Boston,” said Governor Charlie Baker. “We look forward to continuing our work with local partners and the private sector to create jobs and support economic development in communities across Massachusetts.
“Massachusetts and Greater Boston are major players and competitors in the global economy and we are proud of the many companies that call the Commonwealth home,” said Lt. Governor Karyn Polito. “We are pleased to celebrate the groundbreaking of 150 Seaport and welcome this project to Massachusetts.”
“I am excited to break ground on 150 Seaport, a unique project that aligns with our climate resiliency plan and invests in the completion of Martin’s Park, creates affordable, elderly housing in South Boston, and supports the surrounding community with public realm and pedestrian improvements,” said Mayor Walsh. “This project is also creating quality jobs, 46 new affordable housing units, open space, and more connectivity to the waterfront by completing a missing link of the Harborwalk. I thank all of the partners involved and I look forward to watching this building come to life.”
Rising directly on Boston’s waterfront, this residential-only tower will feature iconic design from Elkus Manfredi Architects that mimics the curvilinear shape of a tall ship at sail. The tower’s 114 luxury condominiums will range from one-bedroom condominiums to penthouse homes, each with extraordinary views of Boston Harbor. Owners will have access to the St. Regis brand’s renowned signature services, including concierge and butler service, and the ability to enjoy exclusive use of the tower’s private swimming pool, spa, health club, library, golf simulator and media room. A signature restaurant will provide in-residence dining to residents and cater to residents, guests and neighbors.
“Our team is extraordinarily grateful to all who have contributed to getting us to this launch point,” said Cronin. “Thank you to the elected officials, hard-working state and local agency staff, neighbors, partners and our working group for persevering and making this the best project it can be on this prime waterfront site.”
“We’re thrilled to be a part of this unique, luxury residential project with its exquisite location directly overlooking Boston Harbor,” said Tim Grisius, Global Real Estate Officer, Marriott International. “The St. Regis Residences, Boston will make an exciting addition to our growing portfolio of branded residential projects around the world.”
“The design of The St. Regis Residences, Boston is inspired by the nautical themes of the working harbor and the neighborhood’s connection to the waterfront. The building’s form evokes the bend of a wind-filled sail and the subtle curve of the bow of the great ocean liners that once moored at this location,” explains William Halter, Vice President at Elkus Manfredi Architects. “The building’s slender profile, twisting as it rises to open up to the harbor, offers unobstructed panoramic views. Adding to the excitement of the Seaport District, the building is dynamic from multiple viewpoints.”
