The Waterfront neighborhood area forms a crescent shape, bordered by the Boston Harbor to the East and North, Faneuil Hall, Quincy Market and the Financial District to the South and the North End to the West. Built along both sides of Commercial Street and Atlantic Avenue, most residential buildings are conversions of, or on the sites of, former wharfs or commercial buildings that catered to Boston’s colonial shipping trade. Two of Boston’s newest luxury residential developments, Battery Wharf and The Residences at the Intercontinental, sit at either end of the Waterfront. Residents not only enjoy the sights and sounds of the ocean, they are a short walk to their favorite North End restaurant, North Station and their business interests in the Financial District. Boat slips are available adjacent to some of the luxury doorman buildings. Access the interstate 93, the Callahan Tunnel and Water Shuttle service to Logan Airport is conveniently located nearby.
