The Davis Company has big plans for the Seaport area of Boston, which includes the construction of the Seaport’s largest hotel to date, along with the renovation of a 376-square-feet of industrial space in the heart of Boston’s most bustling commercial submarket.
“Our goal is to help continue the transformation of South Boston’s waterfront district, as there has already been significant development over the last several years,” Omni Hotels & Resorts CEO Jim Caldwell said.
The Omni project is not the only development the company has underway in the neighborhood. Davis announced in April a return to a stretch of the Seaport it famously revived before the rest of the neighborhood began its current building boom.
“The Seaport, and in particular the Raymond L. Flynn Marine Park area, is arguably becoming Boston’s most innovative research and development cluster,” Davis Cos. founder and CEO Jonathan Davis said.
Jamestown, a real estate investment and development company headquartered in Atlanta, leases the 550,000-square-foot complex in the 1.4-million-square-foot Innovation and Design Building complex from the city of Boston. The complex contains 550,000 square feet dedicated to luxury home furnishing showrooms along with office and innovation space...Jamestown recently completed more than $13 million in interior renovations at the center, the first major physical updates since it opened in 1985. The project included renovations of the lobby, common spaces and seminar room and new finishes and furniture from design center tenants.
