The Boston Seaport is the perfect assemblage of the old and new for live, work and play.

A recently NYTimes article on the Seaport notes the following:

Thomas M. Menino, a city mayor who died in 2014, had envisioned the area, just across the Fort Point Channel from downtown as an “innovation district,” with state-of-the-art office space, plenty of walk-to-work apartments, numerous restaurants, and pedestrian-friendly streets and parks. Since 2000, the area has gained 10 million square feet of development and more than 4,000 residents. And in recent years, the appetite for a Seaport address has only increased, such that 2,700 residential units and 1.3 million square feet of office space are now in some stage of construction, according to the Boston Redevelopment Authority.

From upstart technology companies to cutting-edge biomedical firms to traditional corporate giants, the Seaport is attracting businesses to both brick-and-beam style office space in old industrial buildings and to new glass office towers overlooking Boston Harbor.

The BBJ reported today that “Equity Office is planning an ice skating rink this winter under the iconic rotunda of Rowes Wharf, home of the Boston Harbor Hotel.”

This is the type of news that all readers can enjoy and think about; perhaps when their parents took them skating for the first time or a first date with someone special? Either way, what a great use for the space and I look forward to taking a few laps with my family.
