Skanska USA Reveals Details of Shipwreck Discovery at its 121 Seaport Project Site

Developer Unlocks a Piece of Boston’s History at Construction Site for New 17-story Office Tower

Development and construction firm Skanska USA and the City of Boston announced the conclusion of an archeological investigation into the remains of a shipwrecked vessel discovered during excavation at the site of Skanska’s 121 Seaport development, a 17-story, 400,000-square-foot Class-A office building with two floors of retail currently under construction in Boston’s Seaport District.

“We’ve enjoyed working closely with the talented team of archaeologists in their search for more information about the ship. Skanska strives to be open and transparent, and we want to respect the communities where we develop and build. That means respecting their history,” said Shawn Hurley ’99, president and CEO of Skanska USA Commercial Development. “We are highly invested in Boston and believe its history is part of what makes it so special. It is fascinating to unlock some of that history while building the city’s future.”
