Boston’s Innovation District is striving to have entrepreneurs live, work and play in the South Boston Waterfront. New office and laboratory space is being constructed and a diverse mix of housing options are also being developed. To help provide additional housing as part of the Innovation District, 197 units were constructed at 411 D Street, immediately across the street from the Boston Convention Center. The 200,000 square foot development will include ground floor commercial and retail space, and four stories of housing above. KZLA is responsible for the streetscape design, and two roof-top terraces. The terraces are being designed to foster social interaction and provide space for active uses.
