When it opens early next year, the 16-story Omni will be the plaza’s tallest building, with 264 hotel rooms that include rooftop hospitality suites (with partial field views) and an elevated pool deck and bar that overlook the plaza.

Next door is One Ballpark Center, Comcast’s new regional office headquarters, scheduled to open a few weeks after July’s All-Star break. Like the hotel, the nine-story tower forms a cornerstone at the plaza’s southern end. It’s expected to house 1,000 Comcast employees and a workspace for engineers, software architects, and technologists called the “Innovation Lab.”

At the opposite end of the plaza is the Battery’s fully leased, four-story loft-office building. Dickey Broadcasting (owner of radio stations 680-AM and 93.7-FM) will claim the fourth floor for its studios and offices. Below that, expect coworking spaces and other firms.

Can’t bear to leave? Rent a place. Three apartment communities together feature 531 units—about 50 of which will be occupied this month. One- to three-bedroom rentals range from $1,225 a month to $4,300.

Parkside (211 units)
Just a few dozen steps from the right field and Chop House gates, Parkside boasts views of the stadium, plus a swanky pool area (with a partially submerged sun shelf for sunbathers) and an entertainment center with shuffleboard and billiards.

Flats (239 units)
Situated within the shopping district, Flats is the Battery’s largest residential building and offers a clubhouse with a gourmet kitchen.

Residences (81 units)
The smallest but most luxurious of the three apartment complexes, Residences offers high-end finishes, along with a rooftop bar, lounge, and wraparound balcony with views of the ballpark’s exterior.
