Project vision

The masterplan includes both apartments and condominiums, within four buildings comprised of approximately 478 residential units on the upper floors, and a mix of residential, community, restaurant, and recreational uses at the ground level. Clippership Wharf provides access and enjoyment of the waterfront, and to some of the most striking panoramic views of downtown Boston available along the Boston Harbor.

The site offered the opportunity to create a truly unique urban environment, with an abundance of open space and a variety of opportunities for public gathering, recreation, and the ability to interact with the water's edge through the reintroduction of a natural, living shoreline. A new series of salt marsh terraces, bracketing the daily tides, resulted in a diverse new wetland community for flora and fauna. The site also benefits from exceptional public transit access, with the existing Maverick Square MBTA Blue Line station and proximate head house, and the existing water taxi infrastructure just steps from the site.

Fulfilling the promises of Clippership’s LEED for Neighborhood Development certification, we are proud to announce that the Clippership Wharf residential units earned LEED Platinum certification.
