Boston’s District Hall Celebrates Grand Opening
|November 6, 2013||Posted by Anharris under Events|
Pleased to have attended the celebration for the opening of District Hall–the beautiful new event center for innovators located in Boston’s snazzy Seaport District–just across from the Institute for Contemporary Art. Managed by the Venture Cafe Foundation–a sister organization of the Cambridge Innovation Center (C)C) where I work– District Hall has a large event space, conference and class rooms, a restaurant and a view of the Harbor. What I like best is its scale–it’s not a skyscraper, is not overwhelming like the nearby convention center or the CIC in Kendall Square. It’s just a simple, welcoming space with white board, galore.
As described on its Web site as:
“It’s the first building of its kind in the world….
” …A dedicated civic space where the innovation community can gather and exchange ideas. Inside you’ll find open workspace, classrooms, assembly space, flexible use ‘pods’, and writable surfaces everywhere! Also stop by for coffee and food at Brew and Gather.”
“…The result of a collaborative public-private partnership. When Mayor Thomas M. Menino announced his vision for the Innovation District, he called for a gathering space for innovators to get together and share ideas. The building was then privately funded and built by Boston Global Investors, as the first project in their twenty-three acre masterplan for Seaport Square. Operations and programming are run by the Venture Café Foundation, a not-for-profit sister organization to the Cambridge Innovation Center (CIC). ”
