Clippership Wharf in East Boston

New Leases Add Variety to Restaurant Options at Boston’s Clippership Wharf

Lendlease has secured two new restaurant leases at Clippership Wharf, a climate-resilient, mixed-use residential development in East Boston. Interior construction on Cafe Iterum is already underway in preparation for a November opening, and The Smoke Shop will open its full-service location next year.

Café Iterum will serve patrons in a 1,100-square-foot dining room and 1,400-square foot patio. The Smoke Shop will serve within 4,000 square feet of interior space and three separate patios that add 2,000 square feet.

Clippership Wharf was developed and constructed by Lendlease. It occupies a 7-acre site overlooking Boston Harbor and includes 284 apartments and 194 condominiums (along with a rooftop solar array that can generate enough energy to power up to 40 homes per year). Public amenities include the ClipArt Gallery and public art displays, a 1,400-foot stretch of Boston’s 40-mile Harborwalk, an amphitheater and a dog park.
