June Member Lunch with Jeff Wechsler, Tishman Speyer
Join us for the June Member Lunch with Jeff Wechsler, Managing Director, Acquisitions and Development at Tishman Speyer.
Jeff will share details of the Tishman’s newest property, PIER 4.
PIER 4 is located along the Boston Harbor in the Seaport District. Developed by Tishman Speyer, PIER 4 will soon be home to a nine-story, 106-unit residential building, designed by internationally acclaimed SHoP Architects in collaboration with Boston firm CBT. As the only Seaport condominiums surrounded by water on three sides, each home at PIER 4 will offer sophisticated and unique layouts with elegant finishes and private outdoor space with captivating views.
PIER 4 will also be home to a thirteen story office tower featuring an expansive rooftop terrace and breathtaking harbor views. Large, flexible floor plates, floor-to-ceiling glass and abundant parking are complemented by on-site retail and amenities to include a state-of-the-art fitness center and innovative sustainable design targeting LEED Gold certification. Direct access to the Financial District, convenient public transportation and a host of local amenities make PIER 4 the ideal setting to inspire industry leaders.
The development will bring expansive public spaces to the Seaport neighborhood, including a one-acre public park at the tip of the pier and the continuation of the Harbor Walk around the perimeter of the site. There will also be a public plaza between the neighboring Institute of Contemporary Art (ICA) and the condominium building.
