Today we launched a comprehensive new resource for office tenants in Boston's Innovation District:

The Professional's Guide to Boston's Seaport Neighborhood

We surveyed and spoke with thousands of tenants to understand what professionals want from their workplace experience and one of the most consistent pieces of feedback we received:

Tenants want knowledge of and access to all of the local amenities, perks, experiences, and events that are in the vicinity of their office building – and they want to access it easily from their phone. 

This neighborhood guide serves to help professionals navigate their work day – from going to the gym in the AM, to grabbing breakfast, to finding a good coffee spot for a business meeting, to accomplishing the life services that make work easier like daycare, hair salons, FedEx locations, catering options, and much, much more. 

For professionals working in the Seaport, we hope you'll dig in and take advantage of all that this neighborhood has to offer. Here's a sneak peak:
