If you’re craving a European getaway this summer, no need to book an airline ticket. Our very own Seaport neighborhood will soon become home to a grand piazza inspired by idyllic town squares in Europe.
Last week, WS Development unveiled their plans for The Superette, a retail space expected to open in the spring or summer of 2022. The piazza, or public square, will feature plenty of seating + a tree canopy.
Designed by Kohn Pederson Fox (KPF), The Superette aims to be “an architecturally distinctive retail haven that reflects the way people live today,” according to WS Development.
Here’s what else we know about this upcoming addition to the Seaport:
- It will be located in the first two levels of the Echelon Seaport luxury residential complex
- The development will span an entire city block along Seaport Blvd + occupy a whopping 125,000 sqft. That’s a little more than three football fields.
- Expect 40 stores, restaurants, and entertainment venues to visit
- High-end boutiques will include Rag & Bone, Scotch & Soda, and Vince
Plus, it wouldn’t be a Seaport spot if it didn’t lean into all things trendy. Bostonians will get to experience a full-service salon from Seaport Barbers, a speakeasy cocktail bar called The Garret Bars, and Puttshack, an indoor mini-golf concept.
While the full list of retailers is still to be announced in the coming months, we’d say there’s plenty to be excited about already.
