South Boston Waterfront, situated directly southeast across Ft. Point Channel from Downtown, includes the Fort Point neighborhood upon the western corner; Seaport World Trade Center, Marine Industrial Park to the east; and Fan Pier. All these locations are quickly transforming the locality from industrial space and historic warehouses into a tech, residential and creative city hub.
A number of apartment buildings recently have been constructed or are in development within the Innovation District, and offer residents apartment, micro-unit and condominium options. Historic Ft. Point hosts affordable artists' units alongside marketplace rate "loft living" opportunities inside previous warehouses. Boston's Harborwalk runs alongside the piers, linking residents to the 45-mile waterfront network. A number of civic and cultural institutions are situated inside the S. Boston Waterfront, which include the Institute for Contemporary Art, Children's Museum, John Joseph Moakley U.S. Courthouse, as well as Bank of America Pavilion.
