About Pier 4

130-140 Northern Avenue, Seaport District, Boston, MA

Tishman Speyer's $500 million Pier 4 development project overlooking Boston Harbor will feature a 13-story office building containing 353,000 square feet of office space with 20,000 square feet of ground-floor retail and a nine-story residential building containing 106 luxurious one-to-four-bedroom condominiums with 17,000 square feet of ground-floor retail. A total of 37,000 square feet of ground-floor retail will be located at Pier 4. Both buildings will feature rooftop terraces and state-of-the-art amenities. Pier 4 will include a one-acre public waterfront park. A two-level underground parking garage will be located on site.

Each condominium at Pier 4 will feature private outdoor space; penthouse condominiums will also feature private roof decks. Pier 4 will offer the only Seaport residences surrounded by water on three sides. Resident amenities will include pet-friendly conveniences, an exclusive residents club, an expansive outdoor terrace, a seating and dining area with a fire pit, a luxury fitness center with state-of the-art equipment, virtual golf and on-site self-parking and valet.

On the ground floor of the residential building will be the Seaport's first farm-to-table restaurant. The restaurant will be operated by Kristin Canty, owner of Concord, MA's Woods Hill Table, and will have 140 seats, including a raw bar, along with a 40-seat patio. On the office building's ground floor will be a location of Tatte Bakery & Cafe over 3,600 square feet in size.

Completion of the Pier 4 office and residential buildings is expected in Fall 2018. The office building is nearly fully leased; tenants will include Boston Consulting Group, who will anchor the building with a new 202,000-square-foot headquarters office across the top seven floors, and Cengage, who will relocate its’ headquarters to 117,000 square feet across the building's second through sixth floors. The office building is designed by Elkus Manfredi Architects, and the residential building is designed by CBT Architects and SHoP Architects. The office and residential buildings are Phases Two and Three, respectively, of the Pier 4 development plan; Phase One, The Hanover Company and UDR's 100 Pier 4 mixed-use building, debuted in 2015.

Such a beautiful development but such a shame that the park at the end of the pier seems so static. This is the perfect spot for a large signature sculpture fountain, maybe a huge cod or a lobster, similiar to the Merlion in Singapore! Would be an instant attraction and one of Boston's most photographed spot!
