    SEAPORT SQUARE in BOSTONS INNOVATION DISTRICT:A Plan That Can Deliver Innovation

    Innovative housing for active research communities

    The City of Boston is in a global competition for companies, new ideas, new ways to work, creation of new jobs and the retention of the areas talent.

    Mayor Thomas M. Menino and his administration have taken a leadership role in setting forth a vision of The New Boston and designated the 1,000 acre South Boston Waterfront and the Boston Marine Industrial Park as the Boston Innovation District.

    The Seaport Square development is perfectly positioned to be the anchor and lead the way for that vision.

    Innovation in design is a critical piece for the creation of a commercially viable community, and sustainability is a crucial aspect of designing for the future. However, it is only part of the equation.

    What differentiates Seaport Square is its unequaled ability to deliver the environment, platform and services required for the critical interactions and collaboration that lead to innovation. Our goal is to create fertile ground from which innovation and transformation, as well as physical and social networking, can occur.

    Proximity and culture matter. We plan to harness those ideals to the fullest to create a place where innovation can groworganically.

    10-minute living, with retail and amenities close by Extensive cultural attractions for a world-class neighborhood

    Mayor Menino and the City of Boston have their strategy in place. This strategy is the formation of an area where there is an attraction, a value and a quality of living and working that brings companies and entrepreneurs to live and work in the Innovation District.

    SEAPORT SQUARE in BOSTONS INNOVATION DISTRICT:Urban Crossroads, Modern Neighborhood

    Diagrams illustrating Seaport Squares connections to the city and beyond

    There is good reason why Bostons waterfront has been targeted for new development and economic growth by developers and the city alike.

    There is space here to build something truly new.

    The waterfront landscape is underdeveloped, so new construction can integrate stringent green requirements and new technologies right from the outset.

    The district lies at a crossroads, where different parts of the city connect with each other and with the world.

    Seaport Square is located at a Boston crossroads, with direct connection to the city center and to the world via Logan Airport. It is accessible by various means of transportation, surrounded by programs that are commercial catalysts and cultural attractors, strategically located on the access routes to amenities of versatile character.

    SEAPORT SQUARE in BOSTONS INNOVATION DISTRICT:Close-Knit Neighborhood Character, A Boston Tradition

    Mayor Menino celebrates with the community at an awards event for Great American Main Streets

    Seaport Square will contribute to Bostons tradition of neighborhoods with distinct identity, as a modern, cosmopolitan district with the activity and the densely-packed amenities of a tight-knit neighborhood.

    Boston is Americas Walking City, a place where 10-minute living is a realityeverything you need is not more than 10 minutes travel time away.

    Seaport Square, with its tight network of retail, culture hotspots, workspaces, housing and recreation spaces, will exhibit that feeling of closeness and accessibility, re-interpreting Bostons walkable identity for the future.

    Seaport Boulevard will aspire to have the impact of another Boston Main Street. Potential interactive installations like Wheres Boston Now? are being considered to celebrate the history and identity of a rich, storied city that is leaping forward into a new century.

    INFRASTRUCTURE:Integrated Energy and Water Reuse

    Integrated stormwater collection can redistribute rainwater for irrigation and greywater uses

    Seaport Square will work to minimize its impact on regional energy and water resources.

    The project will reduce emissions and energy demand project-wide through a comprehensive approach to energy effi ciency, renewable energy infrastructure, and advanced energy monitoring and metering technologies.

    The project has committed to reduce energy consumption by at least 20% compared to Code-compliant buildings, and is continuing to investigate opportunities that will further reduce carbon emissions throughout the operational lifetimes of the buildings.

    Additionally, the project is pursuing various water reuse strategies, including rainwater/stormwater capture and building greywater capture systems.

    SUSTAINABILITY:Passive Techniques

    Green roofs reduce heat island effect, use rainwater and provide additional park space

    While renewable energy and active systems certainly contribute to sustainable design, passive systems have the biggest effect on the environment and on the consumers wallet. Green roofs reduce heat island effect, and increased ventilation can make use of the natural winds in the area.

    Creating a vibrant, high-density mixed-use neighborhood that attracts and retains young professionals is a sustainable strategy in itself.

    Increased ventilation will take advantage of winds coming off of the water for cooling during the hot Boston summer

  • 39

    Well-designed, effi cient curtain wall systems insulate effectively and control heat gain on sunny days

    Buildings will use sustainable materials and innovative construction techniques wherever possible

    Seaport Square represents the most signifi cant commitment to green buildings of any project of its scale in the Commonwealth. Indeed, when fully built-out, Seaport Square may be one of the largest sustainable neighborhoods in the country.

    INNOVATION SCORECARD:Seaport Square Stacks Up with Innovation Districts Worldwide

    The CIty of Boston is modeling its plan for the Innovation District on other similar neighborhoods worldwide, such as Spains [email protected] At Seaport Square, a mix of offi ces and live/work allows interactions & exchange of knowledge; mixed use workspaces, lofts, restaurants & cafes

    attract a vibrant streetlife. A range of housing diversifi es the mix, while cultural amenites inspire communities with art. Retail corridors and plazas create inviting spaces; green roofs and public spaces connect people to nature; and proximity makes the 15-minute commute real.

    [email protected]: This neighborhood in Barcelona [the model for Bostons Innovation District] is strongly in favor of mixing production spaces in order to allow people to live close to their workplace, foster the development of localcommerce and guarantee vitality in public spaces throughout the day. Productive spaces coexist with research, training and tech transfer centers, as well as subsidized housing, facilities and green areas that improve the quality of work and life in the neighborhood.

    Pearl DIstrict: The Pearl District is an area of former warehouses, light industrial and railroad classifi cationyards in Portland, Oregon now noted for its art galleries, upscale businesses and residences. The plans call for the creation of a high density urban residential neighborhood in partnership with the City of Portland. The area has a mix of multi-family housing, major offi ce facilities, regional attractions, retail businesses, parks and open spaces. The plan calls for 5,000 new housing units with an average density of 100 units per acre. This also mandates that the mix of new housing meets the income demographics of the City as a whole.

    K-BLOCK INNOVATION CENTER:A Urban Lab for the Citys Core Principles of Innovation

    The Core Principles of the Bostons Innovation District require that it function as an urban lab, exhibit environmental leadership and foster shared innovation.

    BGI is exploring the development of an Innovation Center on Parcel K. This Center is designed to help promote the Mayors initiative; it will provide community space that fosters collaboration, learning and the sharing of ideas. The building itself will exhibit innovation in design and construction methods, including modular assembly.

    New technologies and ideas would be tested at the K-Block Innovation Center. Successful ones would be integrated into the alternative Live / Work housing at J-Block, and from there would make their way into the rest of the Seaport Square project.

    Modern technologies like electric car hook-ups, health-monitoring and social media retailing would thus be tested at K, and then become a part of the everyday lives of Seaport Square residents and visitors.

    The Innovator Workspace is a fl exible offi ce environment with open-plan seating and private conference areas and rooms

    The central community gathering area functions as a Commons, and can be reconfi gured as an event space
