“We are proud to continue our partnership with Amazon in Boston’s Seaport, a neighborhood that has grown to serve forward-thinking employers, residents, and retailers and that is now a global hub of innovation and talent,” said Jeremy Sclar, Chairman and CEO of WS Development.
This is Amazon’s second full-building lease in Boston’s Seaport after securing a 430,000-square foot building at 111 Harbor Way. Now under construction by WS Development, this office will be completed later this year and will host 2,000 Amazon employees.

Using our Scale for Good in Massachusetts
Amazon continues to support the communities in which it operates in Boston and Massachusetts. Amazon Future Engineer, our comprehensive childhood-to-career program designed to inspire, educate, and prepare children and young adults from underrepresented and underserved communities to pursue computer science, supports more than 20 schools in the Boston area, and more than 60 across the state of Massachusetts. The program provides local schools with high quality computer science education curriculum and teacher professional development. Amazon has also provided grants of more than $1.5 million to St. Mary’s Center to support women, children and families in need facing homelessness.
Since 2010, Amazon has created more than 20,000 jobs in Massachusetts and invested more than $6.2 billion across the Commonwealth, including infrastructure (from fulfillment centers to retail locations to our Boston Tech Hub) and compensation. These investments have contributed an additional $5.3 billion to the Massachusetts economy and have helped create an additional 13,400 jobs on top of those that the company directly employs – from jobs in construction and logistics to healthcare and professional services. Additionally, more than 34,500 independent authors and small and medium businesses in Massachusetts are currently growing their businesses with Amazon.
Amazon is guided by four principles: customer obsession rather than competitor focus, passion for invention, commitment to operational excellence, and long-term thinking. Customer reviews, 1-Click shopping, personalized recommendations, Prime, Fulfillment by Amazon, AWS, Kindle Direct Publishing, Kindle, Fire tablets, Fire TV, Amazon Echo, and Alexa are some of the products and services pioneered by Amazon.
