Event Summary

The former Mayor of Boston, Thomas Menino,

put forth

the "Boston Waterfront Innovation District" initiative in 2010. That vision of

has manifested itself

within the past decade to a remarkable extent. It is absolutely no secret that

the Seaport District is the hottest place to be in Boston. Luxury high-rises, new condos, and hotel development have quickly exploded alongside thoughtful park and public spaces and attractions such as the Institute for Contemporary Art. The

building boom that has continue to shock Boston onlookers seems to roll on. Cranes continue to set new foundations and put a new face on the historic shipping and industrial center of Boston.

As the Seaport continues to receive its newest face-lift, how can it ensure that it will grow alongside the innovation and education industries that have defined Boston's history for so long?

Please direct any questions or comments to the John, the Event Producer, at

5) What asset classes are winning the district and which are lagging behind?

6) What will the Seaport look like in 2040?
