Also known as the "Innovation District" or "Seaport District," this 1000-acre neighborhood of Boston has rapidly transformed from historic warehouses and industrial space into an innovation hub for the city. The South Boston Waterfront District offers a dynamic mix of opportunities and spaces, drawing on burgeoning technology, biotech, and design communities. At the heart of this area is District Hall, the world’s first civic innovation center.  This interdisciplinary community is home to autonomous vehicle testing, the new General Electric headquarters, and MassChallenge, the world’s most startup friendly accelerator. The neighborhood is also home to the Dana-Farber Cancer Institute’s Lurie Family Imaging Center and biotech leaders like Vertex and Ginko Bioworks. Join this tour to experience the creative and dynamic spirit of innovation and development across the South Boston Waterfront District, steps away from the 2018 BIO Convention!
