Real estate changes keep coming to Boston, not only in new construction, but also an assortment of renovations planned throughout the Seaport submarket. One notable update is slated for The Seaport Word Trade Center, which is poised to add 30,000 SF of retail space to its existing 804,000 SF footprint.
Among the intended modifications to Seaport World Trade Center are “plans to close Commonwealth Hall, an existing exhibition space at the Seaport World Trade Center, and create new conference and event facilities at the Seaport Hotel,” a recent article on the BBJ notes.
Further details on the expected renovations are available on the Boston Business Journal.

The Seaport continues to evolve and welcome new businesses. L.L. Bean opened April 5th at One Seaport.
From the Boston Herald:
The 8,600-square-foot store at One Seaport (60 Seaport Blvd.) — the company’s fifth in Massachusetts and 35th outside Maine — is a fraction of the size of its almost 300,000-square-foot flagship store in Freeport, a destination many Bostonians have made pilgrimages to for years…To accommodate the new store’s size constraints, the company had to carefully select its merchandise. Selections at the Seaport location will include town-to-trail apparel for adults and children, and equipment ranging from full-sized kayaks to light, packable gear like inflatable paddleboards suitable for small apartments, said spokesman Eric C. Smith.
“The idea here was to curate it for someone who either lives here or visits here,” Smith said. “But we will continue to learn a lot from this store as our first urban one.”
