Located at 776 Summer Street, L Street Station was a former coal-fired power plant that operated for more than a century from 1898 until its decommissioning in 2006. Closed off from the surrounding neighborhood over 120 years, this 15.2-acre waterfront site has a rich history of entrepreneurship and was once owned and operated by the Boston Edison Company, who were on the forefront of major electrical innovations at a time when the world was first becoming electrified.
HRP acquired the site in 2016 in partnership with Redgate Capital Partners. Over the next decade, the site will be transformed into a vibrant mixed-use district connected to the Seaport and the South Boston neighborhood containing commercial, residential, hotel, retail and civic space along with significant public open space.
The project adaptively reuses 4 historic grand turbine halls, incorporates resilient site design and improves traffic, transit and pedestrian infrastructure in and around the site.
