EchelonSeaport Tops Off
A large crowd turned out Tuesday morning for the topping off and a special look inside the impressive construction site that will be EchelonSeaport. After almost 1 year of construction the final beam for 133 Seaport Boulevard signed by the construction team, project workers, and the crowd, was put in place.

The nearly 4-acre site, once home to a series of parking lots will include 717 residential units and 125,000 square feet of retail/restaurant space. Alex Shing, CEO of Cottonwood Management, told the crowd EchelonSeaport will be the flagship community for his team and looks forward to Cottonwood’s continued involvement in Boston. Cottonwood's goal with EchelonSeaport was to use the most advanced urban planning to construct a project that integrates with the existing community. The large central courtyard will host open-air markets and public events that will bring the neighborhood and residents together.
Mayor Walsh also addressed the crowd, thanking the development team for their commitment to the City of Boston and their efforts in helping Boston reach its goal of 53,000 new units of housing by 2030. Walsh also applauded the innovative design, making special mention of the sky bridge that connects the buildings.

EchelonSeaport will offer residents 5-star white glove service along with 60,000 square feet of amenities including 3 pools, indoor basketball court, golf simulator, and open-air dog run. Completion of the project is expected in phases between late 2019 and early 2020.
