features two residential towers (20 and 22 stories) with more than 830 units and about
250,000 square feet of retail space.
One Seaport Square is a joint venture led by Berkshire Group that includes Boston
Global Investors and WS Development. The $600 million development totals roughly 1.1
million square feet.
One Seaport Square is the largest project in a $3.5 billion reinvention of the Seaport
Square neighborhood. Altogether, that undertaking will cover 23 acres and include 6.3
million square feet of mixed-use projects. Berkshire Group purchased the land for $72

remaining parts of Seaport Square.
The residential towers at One Seaport Square are named The Benjamin and VIA. Both
towers have views of the city's skyline and harbor, indoor and outdoor amenities and
shared spaces, and modern interiors and technology.
As for the quarter-million square feet of retail space, One Seaport Square will have the
highest concentration of retail space in the Seaport District. That includes a mixture of shopping, dining, fitness and entertainment experience on the first three floors of each tower.
Finally, One Seaport Square also features Courthouse Square, a retail-lined open
