Fort Point is a historic neighborhood on the South Boston peninsula featuring dramatic views of the Boston skyline and harbor. Located just a short walk over the bridge to the Financial District and Downtown Boston, the neighborhood also boasts a collection of historic industrial buildings. Built by the same architect, many of these buildings have a similar look and feel and were home to extensive art communities because of the low rents at the time. Select buildings have been converted into luxury lofts with high ceilings, exposed brick, and wooden beams. Fort Point still retains its artistic roots by hosting annual events showcasing up and coming artists and is anchored by the Children’s Museum as well as a short walk from the Institute of Contemporary Art.
Fort Point is close to the Shawmut peninsula comprising Downtown Boston. To the north and east is the Seaport; to the south is the west side of South Boston, including Andrew Square; and to the west across the narrow channel are the Financial District and the Waterfront.
