Currently under construction, The Benjamin is one of the two residential towers — with VIA being the other one — that will be part of the One Seaport Square development. One Seaport Square will be a 1.5 million-square-foot mixed-use development in Boston’s Seaport District (per the BRA).
The Benjamin will contain 354 apartments, which will include studios through three-bedrooms. The apartments will be located on floors 17 through 22 of the building and will feature ultra luxurious finishes, direct elevator access and breathtaking views. One Seaport Square will qualify for LEED Silver certification.
One Seaport Square will have 775 below-grade parking spaces spread out across three levels. 430 of these will be parking spaces for residents and 345 will be reserved for the public.
Amenities to Include a fitness center, business center and concierge
The Benjamin will have a five-star lobby with professional door attendance. It will also have 24-hour concierge service along with a high-tech Butterfly cloud-based video intercom.
There will be two outdoor terraces on the building’s fourth floor. One of these will be a Pool Terrace, which overlooks Fort Point Channel. Additionally, there will be 8,000 square feet of common space. These areas will include an executive business center, entertainment and relaxation lounges, a catering kitchen, a private dining room, an espresso bar and a fitness center.
The area surrounding The Benjamin and VIA will be a mixed-used neighborhood, with 250,000 square feet of planned retail space, making it the largest shopping and dining venue to date in the Seaport. Thirty new stores are expected as well as a number of restaurants. Residents of The Benjamin will have access to a fitness and lifestyle leader Equinox, in addition to a Mexican tequila cantina rock bar Scorpion Bar & Restaurant and destination nightclub The Grand. Retail occupancy will start from late summer through Fall 2017.
