South Boston Waterfront

This is where the future is coming fast: A revitalized urban waterfront is coming together rapidly, capturing vital water-related uses and garnering a large share of the city’s developing innovation economy.

Surviving assets include the Northern Avenue Bridge, Boston’s Fish Pier, the World Trade Center, drydocks and shipping piers, and the Boston Design Center. And the newer catalysts: the Institute for Contemporary Art, the Federal Courthouse, and Liberty Wharf’s booming restaurants.

All this is connected with the city’s mandated harborwalk, which requires that developers and institutions provide public access along the entire coastal edge.
