Unique Cafe & Art Related Space Opportunities at The Artist Building at 300 Summer

Dreamed of opening your own café or art gallery? The Artist Building at 300 Summer is offering two unique rental opportunities. 

A 1,700 square foot café in their Atrium including a kitchen. 

A 1,094 square foot arts-related space with large glass windows and doors that abuts the atrium and formerly housed the FPAC Gallery.  The space is also available for other arts related non-profits or arts related business uses.

Reasonable rent for the right fit to join this artist building composed of 47 live-work spaces and 7 businesses.

The building at 300 Summer Street is a historic structure originally built for Boston’s wool trade in 1898 by the Boston Wharf Company. With large windows, abundant light, and views of downtown Boston and the harbor, the building was perfectly suited for conversion to artist lofts. In 1992, the Fort Point Arts Community acquired the building and Keen Development redeveloped it into a artist live/work limited equity cooperative joining fellow artists at the 249 A Street Artists Cooperative in the neighborhood.

Filming in Fort Point This Thursday. Parking Restrictions Start Wednesday On Medallion & Thursday for A St, Binford & D St.

Atlantic Wharf Wants Changes To Our Public Spaces. Meeting Monday, March 13th.

updated 03/20/23: Added presentation link to MassDEP and the presentation will be posted shortly on BPDA website.

MassDEP in conjunction with the BPDA are holding a meeting tonight regarding proposed changes to our public spaces at Atlantic Wharf as mandated under the MA Public Waterfront Act (Chapter 91) and need your feedback. The meeting will be held:

Monday, March 13, 2023
Atlantic Wharf Fort Point room or online

Comment Deadline: April 7th 
Submit comments to with the subject line “Atlantic Wharf"

Boston Properties, Atlantic Wharf's owner, is proposing changes to their special public destination facility or interior public spaces part of their Chapter 91 license #11419 requirements. The major changes are to:

  • relocate the Fort Point Room from its existing 2nd floor space to a ground-floor space fronting on Congress Street, combining a space previously used as a restaurant (Boloco) with space occupied by the Boston Society of Architects (BSA space)
  • convert the existing Fort Point Room to commercial office uses
  • discontinue the use of the existing 2nd floor exterior deck

Boston residents and abutting neighbors are encouraged to attend Monday night to discover more about the changes above and all changes under consideration:

  • Will the new proposed space meet the needs of the public and abutting neighbors?
  • Will the groundfloor be activated in a way that adds value and enhances the existing standards/experience?
  • How will the public interact with the spaces and what will be the public experience?

  • How will privatizing the Fort Point room and deck provide public benefits & support programming?
  • How will the loss of 2,630 square feet of interior public space be reinstated or recaptured? This does not include the loss of 3,270 sf from the 2nd floor terrace. 

  • What will happen to the 2nd floor non-profit office space? 
  • Why is the civic cultural concierge being replaced by a tv screen?
click on image for better viewing

There is a lot to consider in determining whether the proposed changes benefit the public more or less than before, especially when regarding this special destination facility of public accommodation.

In addition to the 2nd floor Fort Point room and the 2nd floor non-profit office, the original ground floor approved in 2006 included:

  • A "Town Square," of approximately 6,300 square feet of skylit civic gathering space within the atrium area of the Graphic Arts and Tufts Buildings, with programming and promotion to be provided by the Proponent (to remain in the current size & condition?)
  • A Multi-Media Performance Area, approximately 3,800 square feet, providing a destination location for visitors and city residents to learn about Boston's history, culture, diversity and future (BSA space being replaced by a meeting room?)
  • A waterfront restaurant and cafe/performance venue, part of the Fort Point Channel "RestaurantRow," providing flexible space for alternative uses and populations at different times of the day (being replaced by a meeting room?)
  • A "Channel Concierge," providing information, maps, ticketing, and details on current events (to remain?)
  • A Community Art Gallery (to remain in the current size & condition?)

The comment deadline is April 7,2023. Comments should be submitted to: with the subject line “Atlantic Wharf”.

Atlantic Wharf (formerly known as Russia Wharf) underwent redevelopment in 2005 for the properties at 530 Atlantic Ave. and 270-286 Congress St.  The site planning started with the BPDA (then BRA) and the Fort Point Downtown Municipal Plan and as stated above is subject to the MA Public Waterfront Act, commonly referred to as Chapter 91, administered by MassDEP. MassDEP required a SPDF or special public destination facility to offset the impacts of the redevelopment and to provide exceptional public spaces, programming and public benefits.

Land Deal Near BCEC Generating Backlash

The State House News Service reported on February 16, 2023 the the land deal near the BCEC is generatng backlash. 

Collins, Councilors Protest In Letter To Convention Center Authority

Sam Drysdale 2/16/23 5:53 PM

FEB. 16, 2023.....City officials and a state senator representing South Boston raised concerns Thursday that the independent convention center authority may be planning under "false pretenses" to develop land taken by eminent domain for mixed use rather than convention-related purposes.

Sen. Nick Collins, Boston City Council President Ed Flynn and City Councilor At-Large Michael Flaherty sent a letter to state and city officials on Wednesday in opposition to the Massachusetts Convention Center Authority's plan to lease for 99 years three parcels of land on the South Boston waterfront for what they say is not its intended purpose.

After a meeting of the MCCA board on Thursday, a spokesperson for state Administration and Finance Secretary Matt Gorzkowicz also expressed concerns about the process of soliciting development proposals.

The mostly unbuilt 6.2 acres of asphalt along D and E streets across the street from the Boston Convention and Exhibition Center were taken by eminent domain in 2012 and 2013 to expand the convention center industry in the area.

After owning the properties for over a decade, the MCCA opened a 30-day bidding period for the land on the week of Thanksgiving, resulting in only two bidders, according to the letter.

One development proposal filed by the Boston Global Investors firm would build three mixed-use commercial buildings that would include ground floor retail, a grocery store, a green roof for public gathering and urban agriculture, parking spaces and over 40,000 square feet of public open space.

Cronin Development's proposal also includes three mixed-use buildings on the three land parcels. They propose a gallery focused on Black and brown artists, a performance and lecture space, life sciences labs, an open market area with food vendors, full service grocery store and a parking garage.

Both proposals also include 50,000 square feet of office space for the MCCA.

In the request the MCCA sent out on Nov. 21 to solicit proposals and start the 30-day bidding process, the authority said it was seeking development that "activates the D Street neighborhood through office, commercial, industrial and/or similar uses," delivers the 50,000 square feet of office space for the authority, fulfills BCEC's parking needs and includes space dedicated to "community-based uses."

When asked about the best use of the land for future development, authority spokesperson Philip Crohan referred to the "key elements and features we have identified as necessary."

Collins said the development proposals didn't fit the listed purpose for the land taking in the 2012 and 2013 orders of taking, which say the properties should be used for "the expansion, operation, and promotion of convention and exhibition centers" or other facilities "necessary to provide services or accommodations to the public in connection" to the convention market.

"These assets were taken by eminent domain for a particular purpose that is not being executed with an open-ended bid offering," Collins, Flynn and Flaherty wrote to Administration and Finance Secretary Gorzkowicz and Boston's Chief Financial Officer Ashley Groffenberger, who sit on the board. "This has given rise to the concern about the MCCA land banking under false pretenses."

Collins said he believed the properties were intended for, and should still be used for, mid-priced hotels to make BCEC more competitive for mid-priced conventions, rather than just luxury events.

"In addition to making Massachusetts more competitive in the meeting and conventions business by offering different price points, [hotels] would also deliver high-quality, blue collar jobs for a diverse array of area residents," the South Boston Democrat said.

The MCCA's request for proposal also says they expect the lease price per year would be "at least" $5 per square foot, which at 6.2 acres, is $1.35 million. In 2012 and 2013 the MCCA paid roughly $51 million for the land, Crohan said. The lease agreement is for a term of 99 years.

"We have heard from previous owners who would like their property returned if the aforementioned public purpose is no longer the driver for the need to own this land," Collins, Flaherty and Flynn wrote.

The three South Boston politicians urged the MCCA's board of directors to stop the "unusual and uncompetitive process so that the community and taxpayers can be sure that their assets are handled with integrity."

The authority board met Thursday to discuss the bids, but members quickly retreated into an executive session. The session was closed to the public under the basis that open discussion of the land rental "could have a detrimental effect on the Authority's bargaining and negotiation position."

Shortly after the public meeting was closed for the board to speak privately, Flynn tweeted, "Another example of @MassConvention's lack of transparency: their board meetings are neither in person nor public. Anyone from the public trying to log in to the meeting right now where a 99-year public land lease is being discussed has been shut out. Time for change! #bospoli."

Crohan said the authority could not release any details of what was discussed in the executive session.

"The purpose of this function is to avoid any influence or detrimental effect to ongoing or future purchases, exchanges, or leases of property that an open meeting may inflict," Crohan said. "Because of the very definition and purpose of an executive session, I cannot comment on matters discussed by the committee members after their decision to enter into this portion of the meeting."

Late Thursday, a Gorzkowicz spokesman reflected the secretary's concerns.

"The secretary, as a member of the Massachusetts Convention Center Authority board, has expressed concerns to Executive Director Gibbons about the process used in the issuance of the RFP for development of parcels adjacent to the convention center in South Boston, which resulted in just two bidders. He looks forward to hearing more from the director and his fellow board members about potential paths forward," Gorzkowicz spokesman Matt Murphy said in a statement to the News Service.

Collins was also frustrated by the Thursday meeting, pointing out that the meeting was held over Microsoft Teams, which he said is less accessible than Zoom.

"Not everyone has access to Teams, they should probably be live-streaming it on their website," he said. "Hybrid is fine but things need to be open to the public."

Collins newly chairs the Joint Committee on State Administration and Regulatory Oversight, which oversees matters concerning competitive bidding on public contracts as well as open meeting law concerns. He received the appointment on Wednesday.

"Based off of what's going on with the convention center, there's clearly a need for reform, and the committee will be looking at that this session," Collins said.

He also filed a bill (SD 2406) that would require any state or quasi-state agency that takes private property by eminent domain and does not use it for its intended purpose to return the land back to the original owner at the cost at which it was taken.

Nine of the 13 members of the MCCA board are appointed by and "serve at the pleasure of the governor," and two members are appointed by the mayor of Boston. The two other members are Gorzkowicz and Groffenberger, or a designee for Boston's CFO.

A spokesperson for Boston Mayor Michelle Wu did not reveal the mayor's feelings on the matter.

"The Mayor is committed to working with city and state elected officials and community stakeholders to determine the best path forward," the spokesperson said in a statement.
