Re: Innovation Dist. / South Boston Seaport

Looks like WS is investing in more artwork. Saw these on two of the plazas.

Re: Innovation Dist. / South Boston Seaport

^ These pieces are part of a temporary installation. I think that they will be removed in the near future.

^^I wonder how they look at night, or how they'll mesh with leaves on the trees.

Re: Innovation Dist. / South Boston Seaport

This is in fact a temporary installation, done by the same artists as last year's giant see-saws, and the "hamster wheels" from earlier this winter.

Last year: "Impulse" (one of the pictures on their site is from the seaport)

January: "Loop"

Current: "Prismatica"

These were sponsored by Boston Seaport.

I was part of the team that installed and removed the "Loop" installation, and we will be removing this "Prismatica" installation the morning of April 2nd.

Nathaniel, thanks for your post and for being part of the team who's involved with this. Any plans for spring, summer art installations in the Seaport?

Re: Innovation Dist. / South Boston Seaport

Nothing that I've heard of - I believe these installations are their attempt to "activate" the area in the winter, when people might not otherwise be outside.

That being said, I wouldn't hear about anything more than a month or so in advance anyway.

Re: Innovation Dist. / South Boston Seaport

“What Boston’s booming Seaport District doesn’t have though are some of city’s most critical services, according to a several city councilors.”

“There’s no school, library, community center, nor are there any police or fire stations.”

“There are no ball fields if kids want to play baseball or basketball,” Michael Flaherty, an at-large city councilor, said Wednesday. “There’s not even a polling location.”

“Plans to change that will be at the center of an upcoming City Council hearing, which Flaherty, along with councilors Ed Flynn and Michelle Wu requested during a meeting Wednesday.”

“They anticipate the discussion will revolve around scouting out locations in the Seaport for those services and building partnerships, they said.”

Re: Innovation Dist. / South Boston Seaport



Dont remember seeing this posted yet. Trader Joes possibly could go in right behind Yotel.

“A Trader Joe’s grocery store could be coming to the Thomson Place retail corridor, a collection of brick-and-beam properties that serves as a bridge between Boston’s historic Fort Point neighborhood and the glittering new construction of the Seaport District.”

“A Trader Joe’s representative named Andrew Tobias has applied to the Fort Point Landmark Commission proposing to reopen historic windows, relocate entrances and awnings, and install historic signage at 44 Thomson Place. The commission meets Thursday evening.”
