Tishman Speyer’s Pier 4 Development

Tishman Speyer announced plans for a development project at Boston’s Pier 4 in August 2015. Located in the city’s Seaport District, Tishman Speyer will develop these lots, respectively, as a mixed-use, 13-story office building, and a nine-story, 100-unit luxury condominium. Each building will have ground floor retail space and restaurant space.

“Our goal at Pier 4 is to create the brightest jewel of the Boston waterfront,” said Tishman Speyer president and CEO Rob Speyer at the time of the announcement. “This will be a project entirely worthy of one of the world’s great cities.”

The lots will include two-level, below-grade parking facilities, a one-acre public park, and a half-acre public plaza. Completion of this project is scheduled for early 2018.
