Aerial photo of Boston Waterfront

Since Boston is located on the eastern seaboard, there’s a long stretch of oceanfront properties which are locally known as the North Shore, the South Shore, and Boston Harbor. There are other waterfront properties within the city limits along the Charles River. The harbor area includes the neighborhoods of Charlestown, North End, Downtown, and the north end of South Boston. These areas are further subdivided and given the names: Navy Yard, Wharf District, Waterfront District, and Seaport District. The latter is the focus of this page.

The Seaport is a relatively new district which has undergone major development with high-rise buildings and towers dotting the skyline. Although the Seaport is definitely waterfront property, most people consider “the waterfront” to be Boston Harbor from the North End to South Station.

Consistent with downtown Boston waterfront housing, the Seaport has mainly high-rises and so naturally consists mainly of condominiums. These condominiums might be pied-à-terres, varying sizes of one to three bedroom units, varying sizes of townhomes, and of course, penthouses. WS Development is one of the developers which has transformed this area into a bustling, vibrant community.

Housing has been running from $735,000 for a modest loft to $13,500,000 for a 3,600 sq ft, three bedroom penthouse with monthly HOA dues of $6400. Rentals can run from $3,500 for a pied-à-terre studio to $22,000 for a 2,200 sq ft two bedroom. Obviously, pricing depends upon size, location, and amenities. Real estate sales and pricing are very fluid and can fluctuate in a matter of hours because homes come on and off the market daily… even hourly. What is currently offered for sale is listed below.

*AR stands for Absorption Rate. An AR of 3 or less indicates more inventory than buyers and is termed a seller’s market. An AR of 6 or more indicates a short supply of buyers to absorb all the inventory and is termed a buyer’s market. Now is a great time for buyers to be able to pick up a deal on the waterfront/seaport.
