Work officially began yesterday on the $600-million One Seaport Square project off Northern Avenue in South Boston, which will feature more than 800 residential units in two 22-story buildings, a luxury movie theater, a luxury bowling alley and a luxury health club, as well as space for additional luxury shops and restaurants.

Mayor Walsh and city and state officials joined representatives of Berkshire Group, Boston Global Investors and WS Development, which are building the 1.5-million-square foot project - which is only part of the overall 6.5-million-square foot Seaport Square project.

Don't forget the luxury parking lot, luxury bathrooms, and luxury douchebags.
