About Seaport District / Fort Point
Fort Point Channel has been praised as Boston’s “next great place,” and if you visit any of it’s new and progressive eating and drinking establishments you’ll see why. Now connected to the rest of the city by the recently completed and amazing HarborWalk, and just a short stroll from South Station, residents and businesses are coming to the Fort Point in droves. The architecture typically appeals to the artistic set which has resulted in many creative agencies setting up shop in the historic brick warehouse structures, with monumentally hip restaurants thriving in the buildings lower storefronts. Home to over 300 artists working in a variety of mediums, Fort Point is recognized as one of New England’s largest artists’ communities (fortpointarts.org). Comparable to SOHO in NYC, this neighborhood oozes urban cool, and with it’s close proximity to Downtown and the Financial District and the fabulous new residential projects, everybody is finally taking notice.
Just east of Fort Point, the Seaport District is also enjoying praise as another “next great place”, what used to be a wasteland of asphalt and chain linked parking lots, is now a combination of high in the sky cranes and glass towers in many stages of construction. Upon completion the multiple projects in progress will total millions of square footage of residential, hotel, office and retail, sprinkled across the long edge of the South Boston Waterfront.
