With work underway for Amazon's future home at Seaport Square Block L4, WS expects to begin construction on Parcel P next, later this year. Parcel P, or 400 Summer Street, will include over 600,000 square feet of lab space and is aesthetically designed to connect Fort Point's industrial style with The Seaport.
As part of the 400 Summer Street project, WS will be building a new connection between Summer and Congress Streets. These gorgeous new stairs will include public space and allow for a much more pleasant pedestrian connection than the current A Street Stair option.
