Something that is often taken for granted in Boston is the fact that it is constantly on the cutting edge of technology and business. Developers and architects get creative in this crowded city, making buildings fit where you never expected them and creating real masterpieces. Not to mention the little town just over the bridge with some halfway decent schools, otherwise known as Cambridge which is home to Harvard and MIT. The large number of colleges generate great innovation and plenty of start up businesses for college interns and recent grads.
Google is building new offices in Kendall Square, supposedly their second largest office next to their head quarters. There's no doubt that this will certainly give the area a bit of a new look and generate even more jobs!
We've also talked about the exciting Millennium Towers that are expected on Washington Street at the site of the old Filenes. This could bring a real high end feel to that part of Washington Street and compliment the Financial District.
There have been talks of changing the name of the Financial District to give it a newer more modern feel. This city is certainly looking to make changes, possibly a way to revive itself from the great recession and continue moving forward.
Today was also the ground breaking for the Seaport Towers which are expected to draw more retailers after completion of the large super market that is to be included at the ground level of the tower.
These are just a few of the projects going on in the Boston area and there's certainly more on the way and more being worked on!
