The Seaport/Innovation District is a rapidly transforming area in Boston. Numerous buildings have recently been built or are in development in the Innovation District, offering residents apartment units (Rental), condominium residences (For Sale), and micro-unit options (Artist Lofts & Affordable Housing). Historic Fort Point hosts affordable artists’ units along with market rate “loft living” opportunities in former warehouses. Boston’s Harborwalk runs along the piers, connecting residents to the 45-mile waterfront path network. Numerous cultural and civic institutions are located in this area, including the Children’s Museum, Institute for Contemporary Art, Bank of America Pavilion, and John Joseph Mokely United States Courthouse.
Offering a dynamic mix of opportunities and spaces, the Seaport/Innovation District draws a huge range of businesses and events. A burgeoning tech and biotech community is attracting organizations, entrepreneurs, and designers into flexible office spaces and unique live-work buildings. The Boston Convention and Exhibition Center as well as the World Trade Center host numerous large events each year, while the large piers offer the perfect setting for traditions such as the Tall Ships Festival and Cirque de Soleil. Boston Marine Industrial Park is home to Boston’s cruise ship terminal, seafood processing and wholesaling buildings, Harpoon Brewery, and Boston Design Center. Unique pop-up restaurants and shops appear each summer, enlivening the waterfront. Several hotels accommodate visitors to the area. Area business owners are supported by Boston’s Innovation District, Friends of Fort Point Channel and the Boston Marine Park Business Association.
