South Boston Waterfront

The South Boston Waterfront is the formal name of an area in the South Boston neighborhood of Boston, Massachusetts, but it has increasingly becoming known as the Seaport District. It is part of the Port of Boston on Boston Harbor. While the area is not clearly defined, the Fort Point Channel forms one border and some parts of the area are also included in Fort Point neighborhood, an older, more historic term. The South Boston Waterfront, in a massive renaissance, has exploded in recent years: considered “the hottest, fastest-growing real estate market in the country,” the Waterfront has seen an enormous construction boom. The “Innovation District,” as ex-mayor Tom Menino termed it, is now home to tens of new office towers, residential buildings, and “innovation labs” either proposed or under construction. According to the Boston Waterfront Guide the South Boston Waterfront now has 55 restaurants, 4 hotels, 9 major attractions and continues to grow. The Boston Convention and Exhibition Center straddles D Street. The Seaport Hotel and Seaport World Trade Center is located on Commonwealth Pier. A new home for the Institute of Contemporary Art hangs over Boston Harbor just north of Northern Avenue. The John Joseph Moakley United States Courthouse is on Fan Pier. The Silver Line of the MBTA provides public transportation to the area and the Boston Harborwalk runs through it.
