In the heart of a city so revered for its history, Seaport is a beacon of all things new and unexpected. It’s a home for technology, innovation, art and doing things a little differently. It’s a neighborhood for what’s new and what’s next.
Step into Seaport – nestled between Boston’s scenic waterfront and the historic Fort Point District – and you’ll feel the energy shift. There’s a little more excitement, a little extra style and a sense that something interesting is just around the corner. Like your most well-traveled, in-the-know friend, Seaport is always up on the latest, down to try something new and guaranteed to look good through it all.
From hosting top tech conferences like INBOUND, to being the home of the state-of-the-art Boston Convention and Exhibition Center, to welcoming one-of-a-kind installations by renowned artists, to offering shops and experiences you won’t find anywhere else in in the city, Seaport represents a newer, bolder side of Boston.

Future of Seaport
Seaport is a 21st century neighborhood designed for the way people live today. It’s fast becoming the most sought-after spot for both Fortune 500s and start-ups to set up shop, one of the top residential areas in the city, and a go-to destination for global travelers.
As more people make Seaport the place they work, live and visit, the district will continue to evolve to serve this vibrant community. What’s up next? More spots to relax and enjoy the outdoors, including Harbor Way, a pedestrian promenade stretching from Summer Street to the water’s edge. Another new area, Harbor Square Park, will bring the atmosphere of a European piazza to the neighborhood, complete with a vibrant and varied lineup of shops and restaurants surrounding a scenic common space.
Seaport will continue to grow into a thriving, sustainable neighborhood; a new nucleus of Boston. Filled with an ever-expanding collection of art, cultural events, inspiring architecture, inviting outdoor areas and state-of-the-art spaces for tech companies, biotech firms and innovative new ventures, the future of this modern neighborhood looks brighter than ever.
No matter what exciting developments lie ahead, creating a vital, inclusive community in Seaport remains a top priority. In support of this mission, WS Development established the Seaport Community Grant Program in 2019. The Seaport Community Grant Program is open to all Boston-based not-for-profit organizations, with an emphasis on applicants who focus on environmental or transportation advocacy, social and human services, and the performing and visual arts.
