First EchelonSeaport tower tops off in the Seaport District

Three-building complex is the largest residential development underway in Boston right now

The backers of the EchelonSeaport project in the Seaport District—the largest residential complex currently underway in Boston—officially topped off the first tower in the three-building development on September 25.

The tower is part of a project that is massive in scope and expensive in price. It’s due to have 717 apartments and condos and 125,000 square feet of retail as well as provide a public courtyard for the amenities-starved Seaport District.

The complex’s 447 condos, in fact, will constitute the largest single amount of for-sale housing in the neighborhood. This first tower is of condos, as will be the second one. The third will be apartments.

As might be expected in the Seaport, EchelonSeaport’s condos don’t come cheap. They start at $700,000 and run to more than $5 million. Unit types range from studios to three-bedrooms, with some marketed as pieds-a-terre.

Developer Cottonwood Group and contractor John Moriarty & Associates expect to start opening the complex next year. Kohn Pedersen Fox Associates is designing the towers.
