What’s Catching Our Eye
Back Bay vs Seaport – Less is More in the Seaport
We see the appeal of living in the Seaport. It’s new and vibrant, with good energy, especially during the summer months. But the Seaport isn’t without its critics. The normal knocks include the cold winter winds whipping off the water, rising sea levels, the monotony of the boxy glass architecture, and the lack of an established neighborhood. We continue to struggle with the Seaport value proposition.
