Hilco Redevelopment Partners Reimagines South Boston Power Plant

776 Summer Street, a 15.2-acre site in Boston, Massachusetts, was home to L Street Station, a former coal-fired power plant that provided power to the City of Boston from 1898 until its decommissioning in 2006. Closed off from the surrounding neighborhood for well over a century, this 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.

In 2016, Hilco Redevelopment Partners (HRP) acquired the site and immediately commenced above-grade remediation of certain structures. Shortly thereafter, HRP began working with the South Boston community, City officials, neighborhood representatives and other stakeholders to formulate a redevelopment plan responsive to both community feedback and market expectations. In January 2021, the Board of the Boston Planning and Development Agency unanimously approved the project’s master plan for a 1.68 million square foot mixed-use redevelopment which includes 860,000 SF of life science and office space, 636 residential units, a 240-key hotel and 95,000 SF of retail and cultural space, in addition to 5.7 acres of new outdoor public open space, including an approximately 2.5-acre waterfront park.

Well positioned to house future innovations of our 21st-century creative economy, the site’s history of industrial innovation has left behind four magnificent turbine hall structures that will be adaptively reused to form the authentic heart of this dynamic new mixed-use district. Located at the edge of the vibrant South Boston residential neighborhood, the site is also adjacent to Conley Terminal and across the Reserved Channel from Boston’s rapidly expanding Seaport District. A little over one-mile from South Station, it has excellent transit connectivity as well as quick access to I-90/I-93 and Boston Logan International Airport.
