The development includes garage parking, 20,000 s/f of ground-level retail space, a newly completed extension to the Marina Bay Boardwalk, four elevated courtyards and over 10,000 s/f of diverse amenity offerings housed in both the North and South Buildings.

Pets will also be pampered at Meriel Marina Bay with the fully equipped Bark ‘n’ Bubbles pet spa located within the South Building.

“Meriel Marina Bay’s North Building is seeing a fantastic response from renters attracted to the property’s extraordinary views and easy access to Downtown Boston, and we are confident that leasing will continue at a strong pace with the release of the South Building,” said Sean Sacks, director at Hines. “The launch of this next phase is a key milestone for the project and the continued evolution of the Marina Bay community.”
