The Eddy, opening September on the East Boston Waterfront, ready to welcome residents
The Eddy, a 16-story, $135 million mixed-use tower on the East Boston Waterfront, is ready to welcome its first residents this coming month. Visit the Eddy website for residential leasing information. The Eddy will feature 258 studio, one and two-bedroom residences with a ground-floor waterfront destination restaurant operated by Navy Yard Hospitality Group and Chef Marc Orfaly. State-of-the-art residential unit finishes are designed in keeping with the building’s waterfront location, with blue kitchen tiles, an open floor plan and oversized windows throughout. With sweeping harbor and skyline views from every corner, and a particularly breathtaking vista from the top-floor communal roof deck, The Eddy is a uniquely positioned offering that is sure to be a great place to call home.
Matt Edlen, Director of Acquisitions and Development at Gerding Edlen, sees being able to invite people to experience the East Boston neighborhood as “a tremendous opportunity.” In addition to “very cool, show-stopping” water views that will be “a huge part” of the Eddy resident experience, explains Edlen in an interview with BLDUP, East Boston is “contextually is not the same [experience] you would find in Back Bay or downtown,” with unique culture, art and food and an inherent sense of community. Kelly Saito, a Partner at Gerding Edlen, notes in an interview with BLDUP that while East Boston “seems distant across [Boston Harbor], it is actually really well connected.” With Downtown Boston one subway stop away, Saito notes, East Boston is a “very viable place to live for downtown workers” that is close to, but outside of, downtown and surrounded by water, parks and beaches. “The most unique thing about [The Eddy] is the views,” explains Saito, but “the biggest surprise will be its’ convenience.”
