“From the very start of our plan for the waterfront, we knew housing would be a crucial part of the equation so I’m thrilled to break ground on 236 units of housing at Waterside Place.  The Innovation District is an expanding hub for entrepreneurs to collaborate, a destination for dinning, and with today’s groundbreaking it’s fast becoming a place to live.” -Mayor Menino
