Boston Waterfront Real Estate

The Boston Waterfront Area refers to an exclusive enclave of homes that sit along the Boston Waterfront, just below the North End. Offering expansive views of the skyline and water and endless amenities, condo buildings along Commercial Wharf, Atlantic Avenue, and Rowes Wharf are some of the most sought after addresses in Boston. Select properties include dedicated parking spots as well as boat slips.

The Harborwalk runs through the Waterfront and is part of a 43-mile pathway that connects Boston’s waterfront neighborhoods to the Harbor and each other. Wrapping one side of the Waterfront, The Rose Kennedy Greenway is another neighborhood attraction. The public park features fountains, gardens and modern art sprinkled among its grounds. Home to the New England Aquarium, the Waterfront’s central location makes it easy to get to the Financial District, historic attractions and restaurants in the North End, as well as sporting events at the Garden. Residents include a mix of working professionals; empty-nesters moving back into the city; and young families.  Read more about Boston Waterfront real estate.

More About Boston Waterfront Real Estate

 Boston Waterfront Location

The Boston Waterfront area hugs the Boston Harbor, lying south of the North End; east and northeast of Chinatown and Government Center; and northeast of Downtown and the Financial District. Commute times to South Station are five minutes by car and 10 minutes by train; North Station commutes are 15 minutes by train and an eight minute drive by car. There are also a number of MBTA bus routes that connect the Boston Waterfront with North and South Stations during peak commuting times.

Boston Waterfront History

Much of the area now known as the Boston Waterfront Area, was originally tidal marsh. In 1883 after dedicated landfill activity, the area was largely a port and home to eleven wharves belonging to the Commonwealth of Massachusetts. By the 1880s, the Seaport thrived as an active industrial center before later falling into disrepair.

The Boston Harbor Hotel and much of Rowes Wharf was redeveloped in the late 80s paving the way for the marina, shopping center, and water taxis that exist today. The Seaport area, including the waterfront, benefited from Mayor Menino’s investment in the area as a new center for innovation and technology. Today the Seaport, including the Boston Waterfront Area, is one of the hottest neighborhoods in town.
