WS Development announced plans to build an 18-storey office building in the Seaport District at 88 Seaport Boulevard.
According to the Boston Globe’s Tim Logan, the mid-rise tower will be noticeable for its design.
[W]hile it has the glass walls and hard corners found on many of its neighbors in the bustling district, it has something else, too: Trees and terraces around an open midsection that sweeps down toward Boston Harbor, almost slicing the building into two sections.
The building is being designed by Dutch architecture firm OMA, founded by famed architect Rem Koolhaas.
This is one of the few remaining parcels of the Seaport Square mega-project that remains an empty lot. WS Development is working through the approval process for a series of buildings to be constructed on their four “L” parcels, after which only parcels N and P will remain. These parcels are the ones between Congress and Summer streets.
