A hybrid building and landscape that fosters social impact, enriches the environment, and creates economic opportunities.
With over 650,000 square feet of lab, office, retail and community space, Seaport Circle will bring together the life science hub of Boston’s Seaport with the burgeoning life science ecosystem within the Marine Industrial Park.
Connected to Place
The tower building features large office and lab floor plates, below-grade parking, expansive amenity spaces and outdoor terraces with views to the city and waterfront. A major feature of the project is the approach to the design of the public realm, blurring the boundaries between landscape and architecture.
At street level, the public spaces extend through the center of the site, providing direct pedestrian paths between the waterfront and a new Silver Line Station to better connect the surrounding neighborhoods to opportunities for advancement.
The entire ground floor is open to the public through an urban terrace at the center of the project. Organized around the green corridor are office lobbies, cafés and pop-ups as well as the community lab program, visible from the Silver Line platforms.
Shaping the Public Realm
Designed as a seamless extension of the public realm and with space for last mile transportation options for commuters, tourists, and area residents, a new covered station will increase the utility and safety.
Resiliency and sustainability are seamlessly integrated into the design, addressing storm surges and sea-level rise throughout the project site by elevating all occupiable spaces and protecting critical infrastructure.
