Entry Description

Perched on three-story podiums, the broad terraces and pool deck at One Seaport enjoy water views and respite from the bustle of Boston’s thriving Seaport District. Each of the mixed-use buildings offer distinct outdoor amenities on a combined 21,000-sf of roof decks accessible from spacious communal areas. The landscaped west-facing terrace at The Benjamin features intimate seating framed by an architectural pergola. Lounge chairs and bar tables invite socializing by the pool to the east. Residents of the VIA enjoy fireside seating, grilling stations, and a custom water feature.
