Seaport Square book on Innovation District website

Seaport Square Innovation District book copy
H+A recently worked with Boston Global Investors [BGI] to produce an executive summary of their plans for the Seaport Square proposal in Boston’s newly designated ‘Innovation District’.

The Innovation District is Mayor Menino’s initiative to turn 1000 acres of underdeveloped Boston waterfront into a vibrant, active community, specifically designed to attract a diverse array of entrepreneurs, innovative thinkers and forward-thinking professionals.

H+A was asked by BGI to organize and design a book for the Mayor and the Boston Redevelopment authority, outlining the ways in which the Seaport Square development is poised to deliver the City’s vision of this Innovation District.

Seaport Square spans 23 acres on Boston’s waterfront adjacent to the city’s Financial District on the largest undeveloped parcel in the City of Boston. The site is a Boston ‘crossroads’, with direct connection to Logan Airport as well as the rest of the city. The 6.3 million square foot master plan, designed by Kohn Pedersen Fox, envisions a vibrant 24/7 neighbohood: a unique fabric of residences, shops, restaurants, cultural and educational institutions, hotels, open spaces and a business district with research and office space.

The book has been posted to Boston’s Innovation District website, which is updated constantly with the latest articles and news as the vision moves forward.
