Greater Boston takes a look at Liberty Wharf. While Boston faces different challenges in developing it’s Seaport District than we will face developing the Route 195 land, it is an interesting case to look at, especially as they are ahead of us. Just as Providence is trying to attract the knowledge economy to the Jewelry District, Boston’s Mayor has dubbed the Seaport the “Innovation District.”
Liberty Wharf is the sprawling new complex at the site of Boston’s former iconic restaurant, Jimmy’s Harborside. Liberty Wharf is open, airy and modern|everything its predecessor was not. And it’s the kind of destination that developers are hoping will finally turn Boston’s Seaport District from up-and-coming to the-place-to-be. Rich McGuiness of the Boston Redevelopment Authority, Temazcal executive chef Todd Hall, and former Seaport District business owner Michael Krupp join Jared.
