Boston Neighborhoods: Seaport


About the South Boston Waterfront:

The South Boston Waterfront, known as the Seaport and Innovation District, is located just southeast across Fort Point Channel from Downtown. The South Boston Waterfront is also known as the Seaport District and includes the Fort Port neighborhood on the western edge, Fan Pier, the Seaport World Trade Center, and Boston's Marine Industrial Park to the east. The neighborhood has been quickly transforming from historic warehouses and industrial space into a vibrant creative and tech hub for the city. Boston's Innovation District is becoming a residential hub as well, with new residential developments offering South Boston Waterfront/Seaport condos and lofts for saleAmong apartment, condominium, and micro-unit options for sale, historic Fort Point hosts affordable artists' units along with market rate "loft living" opportunities in former warehouses.

Did you know? From 2000 to 2010, the number of housing units in South Boston Waterfront grew 349.6% (source: BRA).

Boston's Harborwalk is located along the piers and connects residents to the 45-mile waterfront path network. Cultural and civic institutions in the South Boston Waterfront include the Children's Museum, Institute for Contemporary Art, Bank of America Pavilion, and John Joseph Mokely United States Courthouse.
