Lendlease begins work of Slip65 - part of mixed-use development

July 07, 2017 - Owners Developers & Managers

East Boston, MA Lendlease has begun construction of Slip65 condominiums, part of the first phase of development of Clippership Wharf, a mixed-use community on the waterfront. Set on the harbor, Slip65 has views of the Boston skyline and shortest commute to downtown – one stop on the Blue Line or under 10 minutes via water taxi.

“East Boston is finally getting the attention it deserves,” said Nick Iselin, general manager for Lendlease. “Slip65 represents the only condominiums slated to be delivered on the East Boston waterfront, offering an unmatched opportunity for homeowners to experience both a lively, diverse neighborhood and an active waterfront lifestyle.”

Residents at Slip65 and the rental apartments at Clippership Wharf will have access to a unique lifestyle amenity package including indoor/outdoor gathering areas, a fitness and social club, bike storage, a Zipcar program, on-site parking, and a waterfront experience featuring an expanded Harborwalk, a rocky beach and living shoreline area, public docks, and multiple dining and recreation options.

The project team includes The Architectural Team, Inc., The Collaborative Companies (TCC) and Halvorson Design Partnership.

“Slip65 presents a rare opportunity for buyers looking to position themselves on the waterfront in a luxury residence with unbeatable views and amenities at a refreshingly affordable price,” said Sue Hawkes, president & CEO of TCC. “East Boston is experiencing a resurgence unlike any other neighborhood in the city right now. For those who want to be a part of it, this is the perfect occasion.”

Homes at Slip65 range in size from one to two bedrooms and are outfitted with top of the line finishes and oversized windows throughout. Chef-level kitchens offer stainless steel Whirlpool appliances, which are complemented by quartz countertops, tile backsplashes and custom cabinetry. The spacious master and guest bathrooms feature tile floors and chrome fixtures. 

Clippership Wharf is the first major development from Lendlease, a global real estate company. The project will be delivered in two phases and will be comprised of four buildings with a diverse mix of housing, including the 80 condominiums at Slip65 and 398 apartments, quality amenities, and a robust vision for community programming and dining.

Bordered by Lewis St. and Monsignor Jacobbe Rd., Clippership Wharf will transform an underutilized section of the East Boston Waterfront into an active, publicly-accessible extension of Maverick Square and the surrounding neighborhood, while embracing Eastie’s flourishing arts and cultural scene.

The transit-oriented development is conveniently located minutes from downtown’s State Street via the MBTA Maverick Blue Line stop located close the development and five minutes in the opposite direction to Boston Logan International Airport. Residents and visitors will also have direct access to water taxis and bus lines.
