According to the Herald, Gale International has formally filed its proposal for the Seaport Square project, to be built in stages along Boston’s Waterfront, in the Seaport District.
The $3.5 billion project would transform 23 acres of surface parking lots across from the J. Joseph Moakley U.S. Courthouse into a new neighborhood of 5,000 residents.
Hynes wants to start work later this year on a first phase of two smaller residential buildings totaling 110 units, with 46,000 square feet of shops and retail on the first two floors. There are also plans to move and rebuild the Our Lady of Good Voyage Chapel on a nearby site.
When completed, Seaport Square may include up to 2,500 residential units (apartments and condos), over a million square feet of office and lab space, a million square feet of retail, a private school, and a 700-room hotel, according to plans presented by the developer during public meetings during the past several months.
