City and state officials formally broke ground today on a luxury-housing project along Marginal Street and Pier One.
The first of seven buildings in the $46-million Portside at Pier One project is a five-story apartment building with 176 units - 26 designated as "affordable" - along with ground-floor retail space. It's due to open next spring. Ultimately, the project will include a total of 550 apartments.
Construction began in 2006, then stalled along with the economy.
