The Waterfront is located just below the North End of Boston and follows the shoreline of Boston Harbor and Fort Point Channel. Historically, the Waterfront served as the manufacturing and storage hub of Boston’s bustling harbor.
Today, Boston’s historic wharves are home to some of the most exclusive Boston Waterfront properties, many of them restored wharves that have been refurbished into luxury townhomes and condominiums. The Waterfront neighborhood is highly sought after for its incredible views, its proximity to Boston's bustling Financial District as well as its close relationship to Boston's linear urban park system, the Rose Kennedy Greenway.
