Why This Matters

Boston has always been an active city with powerhouse sports teams and dedicated fans. Its reputation as "Title Town" has perhaps overshadowed its rightful claim as a cultural hub for music venues in the Seaport, Cambridge and other new pockets. These two phenomena have created an incredibly active and passionate populous, demanding richer experiences. Some real estate developers are now seeing an opportunity to integrate experiences in neighborhoods that will provide this variety of consumer options such as the upcoming Boston Landing music venue and running track facility dubbed "THE TRACK."

Learn all about how placemaking can (re)define a location, (re)define an identity and provide new opportunities for mixed-use retail success at Bisnow's Boston Placemaking Summit!
