The vision for the Innovation District you are about to see is forever evolving.
Our goal is to successfully execute key projects over the next four years to solidify the vision for the future of the District. We want to ensure that the momentum we all build is sustainable and stays on course until completion.
“A new approach is called for on the waterfront – one that is both more deliberate and more experimental… The massive expanse of the South Boston waterfront, with its existing knowledge base, opportunity for growth, and world-class infrastructure is ripe to produce world-class products and services.”
-Mayor Thomas M. Menino
New Jobs, New Policies, New Ways of Living: Why Here?
The Innovation District is nestled between Boston’s transportation gateways: abutting historic Boston Harbor, adjacent to Logan International Airport, and at the nexus of two major interstate highways. It also contains the largest tract of underdeveloped land in the city of Boston, an area with opportunity for growth, a strong existing knowledge base, and the ideal location for producing new ideas, new services and new products.
From artists in the Fort Point to fish processers in the Marine Industrial Park, from meetings at the Boston Convention and Exhibition Center to conversations on the waterfront of Fan Pier, the Innovation District is 1,000 acres of Boston’s South Boston waterfront peninsula where innovation takes place.
