History of the Boston Seaport

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, to a decrepit no-man’s land of parking lots and abandoned warehouses in the mid-1900s.

Boston Seaport District today

Today, its a hotbed of construction and urban infill. Today, cranes seem to rise every other week, erecting office buildings, Boston Seaport condos for sale, Boston Seaport apartments 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.
