Boston Wharf Co Sign Shines Again

The beloved and iconic Boston Wharf Co. Industrial Real Estate sign is back. The sign, one of Boston's most visible icons and a defining feature of our Fort Point Channel Landmark District, had not brightened the skyline from atop 263 Summer Street for the last couple of weeks.

The Fort Point Neighborhood Association with support from the Fort Point Channel Landmarks District Commission and the Boston Preservation Alliance learned that a timing device failure caused the sign to go under repair. Earlier this week, it switched on with a few letters out. The sign should be completely repaired next week thanks to the maintenance and care provided by the property owner and property management company. 

The Boston Wharf Co. sign provides an an illuminated visual gateway into our neighborhood and is a symbol of our industrial past.
