Clippership Wharf is the newest mixed-use development project on a 12-acre East Boston Waterfront site overlooking Boston Harbor and the Boston skyline. The Clippership Wharf site sits along the Boston Inner Harbor near the Maverick MBTA Blue Line station, offering sweeping views of the Boston skyline from Charlestown to South Boston.
Opening Fall 2018, the under-construction project was designed by The Architectural Team and was designed to achieve LEED Gold Certification, the masterplan and design include four buildings with a combined 478 units, retail space and above-ground parking. Phase I, SLIP65 is comprised of 80 condominiums, additional phasing will include 398 apartments marketed by the name, Dox at Clippership Wharf. The plan calls for a Harborwalk, beachfront area and floating dock where pedestrians can launch kayaks – and where neighbors can be reintroduced to a natural shoreline.
The condominiums at Clippership Wharf, dubbed Slip65, will include one-bedrooms and two-bedrooms outfitted with top-of-the-line finishes and graced with sweeping waterfront views throughout. Residences will feature oversized windows and chef-level kitchens including stainless steel Whirlpool appliances, quartz countertops, distinctive tile backsplashes and custom cabinetry. Resident amenities will include indoor and outdoor gathering areas, a fitness and social club and ample bike storage.
Clippership Wharf is bound to change the way we view East Boston's waterfront site, with The Architectural Team leading the way in sustainability and design.
