Seaport Square Block M breaks ground next Tuesday, Ming Tsai VIP Guest
A groundbreaking ceremony for the $850 million Seaport Square Block M mixed-use development in the Seaport District will be held next Tuesday. Speakers at the ceremony will include Governor Charlie Baker and Mayor Marty Walsh, in addition to a Block M brand unveiling by Cottonwood Management Chairman and CEO Alexander Shing and a special presentation by James Beard award-winning chef and Blue Dragon restaurant owner Ming Tsai.
Tsai's presentation follows the chef's announcement that he will open a new fast-casual stir-fry restaurant called ChowStirs next year. Tsai's renowned Blue Ginger restaurant in Wellesley closed earlier this month after 19 years in business. Tsai has owned and operated the Blue Dragon restaurant in Fort Point since 2013. The Block M development team did not announce Tsai will open a restaurant at Block M. Block M is Cottonwood Management's premiere development in Boston and will feature 730+ luxury residential units with 125,000 square feet of ground-floor retail and restaurant space, with completion expected by early 2020.
