Welcome to 111 Harbor Way in Seaport

Culture, industry, and community converge in Boston’s Seaport district, creating one of the most dynamic and vibrant neighborhoods in the country. Unlocked after a decade of development and $22 billion of public investment, Seaport is now home to an ecosystem of more than 350 companies, from global leaders in technology and biotech, to groundbreaking startups. In the heart of the district, WS Development is transforming 33 acres of land, composed of 7.6 million square feet of residential, hotel, office, retail, entertainment, civic and cultural uses, as well as signature public open spaces. The project represents the single largest active development project in Boston’s history.

111 Harbor Way, designed by a collaboration between the San Francisco and Boston offices of Gensler, is a 525,000 square-foot, 17-story mixed-use building. The first two stories of the project contain 80,000 SF devoted to retail and restaurant uses. The remaining 15 stories feature 430,000 SF of office space that are fully occupied by a leading global technology firm. Gensler respected the authentic industrial context of the Seaport, creating a building that has a timeless aesthetic and a highly articulated expression. The building’s design emphasizes human-focused elements, including outdoor terraces on alternating floors and the Paseo, a street-level interior public promenade lined with shops, cafes, and a welcoming central amphitheater. The project achieved LEED Gold certification.
