“McWHINNEY is thrilled to be entering the Boston market with this exciting Hyatt Place Boston Seaport District hotel project,” said McWHINNEY Co-Founder and CEO Chad McWhinney. “This development will feature modern hotel rooms for those visiting the area and great new restaurant gathering places for both guests and locals to enjoy.”
A Hyatt affiliate will manage the hotel, which will highlight the Seaport District’s historic port activity and nautical design theme created by Boston’s Group One Partners.
“The revitalization of the Seaport District over the past decade has brought major developments like the Institute of Contemporary Art, Fan Pier and Liberty Wharf to Boston residents. Hyatt Place Boston Seaport District will add a new upscale hotel offering to this vibrant area of Boston, providing guests close proximity to the World Trade Center complexes, the Boston Convention & Exhibition Center and a thriving business community,” said Stephen Kallaher, vice president of real estate and development for Hyatt. “We’re thrilled to team up with McWHINNEY - together, our collaboration in this hotel speaks volumes about the strength of Boston’s economy and the appeal of the Seaport neighborhood.”
Located in the heart of Seaport across the street from the Blue Hills Bank Pavilion outdoor concert venue, the mixed-use development will also feature a luxury apartment complex and more than 400 underground parking spaces.
“The Parcel K development will provide needed hotel rooms and housing, continuing our progress towards our housing goal and supporting our local economy,” said Boston Mayor Martin J. Walsh. “The project will be built with climate resiliency and sustainability at the forefront, critically important as we prepare Boston’s waterfront infrastructure for climate change.”
Suffolk Construction is the general contractor for all components of the development and Arrowstreet serves as the Project Architect.
“As the South Boston Waterfront continues to evolve, Massport is committed to smart, well-planned, resilient projects,” said Massport CEO Thomas P. Glynn. “We look forward to seeing the positive impact this development has on the local economy and this incredibly dynamic neighborhood.”
