Where will the innovation district go next to accommodate tomorrow’s new technology startups?  One of the key components is access and infrastructure; if you can’t get there without a car, it’s not going to be viable.

According to the BBJ, “a task force created by Boston Mayor Martin J. Walsh has been focusing on how to replicate the success of the Innovation District in other parts of the city…the group officially recommended the city focus those efforts on the following four neighborhoods: Dorchester’s Fields Corner, East Boston, Dudley Square in Roxbury to Uphams Corner in Dorchester, Bowdoin-Geneva neighborhood in Dorchester.

More information on the administration’s plan for the new innovation district are available on the Boston Business Journal’s website.
