Fan Pier Project Under Way

Glitzy office buildings. High-end condos. A five-star hotel. Mega yachts roaming Boston Harbor. They’re all part of the South Boston waterfront’s long-awaited, $3 billion Fan Pier project, which officially broke ground yesterday on its first office building. The project, being developed by The Fallon Co., will include 3 million combined square feet of residential, commercial, hotel and retail space, as well as an extravagant marina and four-and-a-half acres of green space overlooking the waterfront.
