Leather District Real Estate

A compact area located between the Financial District and Chinatown, the Leather District, or “LD” is home to 19th-century brick warehouses combining offices and luxury lofts. Once the center of Boston’s leather industry, the District now is a mix of upscale restaurants, smaller eateries, bars and the occasional artisanal coffee shop. The Leather District’s authentic “loft living” buildings typically feature large open spaces with soaring ceilings, oversize windows, and exposed beam, brick, and duct work.  Read more about Leather District real estate.

More About Leather District Real Estate

 Leather District Location

 The Leather District is a tightly defined neighborhood near South Street bounded by Essex Street to the north; Kneeland Street to the south; Atlantic Avenue to the east; and Lincoln Street to the west. Its convenient location near Downtown and the South Station commuter rail and Amtrak station have attracted both residents and employers. The Orange Line at Chinatown is also minutes away.

Leather District History

 The city of Boston’s efforts to fill in the former South Cove during the 1830s helped pave the way for the development of the Leather District as well as Chinatown. After the Great Boston Fire of 1872 devastated the city’s business district, any new buildings in the years to come adopted strict fire codes. The buildings constructed in the Leather District in the 1880s and 1920 showcase how the manufacturers tried to balance effectively showcasing the merchandise (on the ground floor) with adhering to the new codes (putting offices and storage on the upper floors). As a result many of these former warehouses still boast large floor display windows and elegant cast iron facades.
