    AROUND THE BLOCK
    WATERFRONT:
    An exclusive enclave of harborside homes.
    Boston’s Waterfront neighborhood proffers some of the area’s most desired condominium properties. These homes afford sweeping views of the skyline and water along with endless amenities. Since the 2008 opening of the Rose Kennedy Greenway, a public park which wraps one side of the Waterfront, the neighborhood has increasingly attracted professionals and young families.
    THE NEIGHBORS:
    Entrepreneurs, innovators, and empty-nesters.
    Situated a mere ten minutes from Boston’s downtown business and Financial District, the Waterfront attracts many high-powered investors and entrepreneurs. Innovators who work in the city’s thriving tech and science industry are also drawn to the neighborhood, drawing inspiration from its calming waters and invigorating walks along the Greenway.
    WHAT TO EXPECT:
    Easy access to work and play.
    The Waterfront is defined by its central location; not only is it adjacent to cultural institutions in the North End and Midtown Theater District, but it’s also only a short distance to Boston Common. Home to the New England Aquarium, Waterfront area residents have swimming sea turtles and scuttling penguins at their back doorstep.
    THE LIFESTYLE:
    Refined amenities meet natural elements.
    Waterfront residents wake each morning to gentle breezes sweeping over the harbor and fall asleep to the calming sounds of water lapping against the docks. Well-regarded restaurants, like the historic Chart House and the wine-driven Meritage, line the piers.
    UNEXPECTED APPEAL:
    A unique urban tranquility.
    The Waterfront lacks a concentrated center, creating a sense in residents that the whole city is truly their home. Modern art installations rotate through the Greenway, transforming the park into an outdoor gallery and insulating the neighborhood from the bustle of downtown Boston.
    THE MARKET:
    Luxury condominiums and high-end apartments abut Boston Harbor, forming a ring around the North End.
    New-construction, full-amenity buildings border renovated wharf buildings that boast exposed brick and original wooden beams. Modern amenities abound – from elevators to parking to concierges and even boat slips in a few cases.
    YOU'LL FALL IN LOVE WITH:
    Harbor breezes and culinary delights sourced from the open sea.
    A highlight of Waterfront living is the Harbor Walk, a long stretch of weathered planks that run between the neighborhood buildings and piers. When residents cook at home, they pick up fresh lobster and other aquatic delights from James Hook & Co., the same seafood purveyor that has supplied the city’s top-tier restaurants for nearly a century.
