BOSTON–One Seaport, Boston’s largest mixed-use development in 30 years, held a ribbon cutting ceremony this week in Courthouse Square, a new 17,000 sf open space that was a key part of the project.

The ceremony took place in front of One Seaport’s Boston is The New Boston, a street art mural created by Portugal’s Half Studio, best known for their prolific and relatable street art.

One Seaport is a marquee destination within the Seaport District. Comprised of two city blocks and situated on three acres of land in the heart of the neighborhood, One Seaport is the largest mixed-use project in the City of Boston in over 30 years.
