WS Targets Net Zero Carbon for Amazon-Occupied Seaport Offices

WS Development’s One Boston Wharf Road project within its Boston Seaport development will achieve Net Zero Carbon status for its 630,000 square feet of office space, making it Boston’s largest such facility. In January, Amazon committed to the entirety of the project’s office space.

“We are proud to deliver a building for Amazon that we all hope will serve as a model for a more sustainable and verdant future for the city we love,” said Yanni Tsipis, SVP at WS Development, who leads the Boston Seaport project. “This commitment speaks directly to the City of Boston’s and the Commonwealth’s carbon neutrality goals by reducing greenhouse gas emissions from this project by more than 90% below code requirements.” 

Construction will commence later this year with completion in 2024. One Boston Wharf Road is Amazon’s second full-building lease in the Seaport, joining the 525,000-square-foot 111 Harbor Way now under construction.
