Last night I attended the party for high-end retail store Louis Boston where they officially announced their move from their long time Newbury Street location (see above photo) to the new Waterfront / Seaport neighborhood.  Partygoer’s were able to view renderings (see below) of the new building which is to begin construction sometime within the next few weeks and aims for a March completion and store opening.  Several came out to celebrate and local rockers Endway provided the music.  The Fallon Company will be the developer on this project and interior design by Tim Button of Stedila Design, Inc. who also designed the Newbury Street store.

The Boston Herald reports “ Upscale retailer Louis Boston will move from the city’s premier shopping boulevard to the uncharted waters of the Fan Pier.

The luxury boutique will vacate its 40,000-square-foot, three-story space at Newbury and Berkeley streets in the Back Bay next spring and move into a smaller “temporary” wood-frame building near the Institute of Contemporary Art on Northern Avenue.

‘I can’t tell you how excited I am to be a Fan Pier pioneer,” said Debi Greenberg, Louis’ owner. “It will look like someone’s loft apartment with a lot of clothes in it.’

Greenberg signed a letter of intent for a 10-year lease with Joseph Fallon, the developer of Fan Pier, the $3 billion development spanning 21 acres that, upon eventual completion, is expected to include three million square feet of residential, commercial, hotel and retail space, with sweeping views of the waterfront and the city’s skyline.”
