Cottonwood Breaks Ground On $900M Echelon Seaport
Despite a torrential downpour of rain and thunderstorms, Cottonwood Management officially broke ground Tuesday on its M1M2 parcel, now known as Echelon Seaport. The over $900M, 1.3M SF mixed-use development will feature 125K SF of retail managed by WS Development. The project will have 733 condos, apartments and micro-units spread out over three towers.
“This project paves the way for more people to see the Seaport as a place to not only work in and visit, but also a place to live in and call home,” Boston Mayor Martin Walsh said.
After the groundbreaking, Cottonwood hosted a party celebrating the brand and vision for the newly named complex. Chef Ming Tsai of nearby Blue Dragon poured cocktails for the groundbreaking.
The project began site prep in March just as Cottonwood opened its East Coast headquarters at nearby 101 Seaport Blvd. Taiwan-based Regent Hotel Group will brand the condominium portion of the development, which is expected to open in phases beginning in 2019.
