Millennium Partners affiliate proposes huge Seaport 'innovation campus'

July 9, 2019

An affiliate of Millennium Partners has formally notified the city of Boston of its intent to develop a 900,000-square-foot "innovation campus" in Boston’s Seaport District.

ICCNE LLC, an entity managed by Cargo Ventures CEO Jacob Citrin and Millennium Partners Founding Partner Christopher M. Jeffries, has submitted a letter of intent outlining its plans to the Boston Planning and Development Agency. The proposal calls for demolishing a vacant warehouse in the Raymond L. Flynn Marine Industrial Park and developing 900,000 square feet of “general office, research, parking and related retail, restaurant and other supporting uses,” the July 8 letter of intent states.

The office campus is a smaller version of what Millennium Partners and Cargo Ventures had initially envisioned as a 2.7 million-square-foot office campus that would be connected to downtown Boston via aerial gondola. The campus was pitched as a potential host for Amazon’s HQ2 second headquarters, with the gondola serving as the “Prime Line,” according to promotional videos shown to politicians and other stakeholders in 2017.
