South Boston is one of the only neighborhoods in the city that not only holds value, but keeps increasing.
Its beaches, and proximity to downtown(you can walk there) are it main features. I was born there and lived there until I was about 30. To us as residents, there was never anything down there except industrial land, and South Boston pretty much ended at the Summer Street Bridge.
The USPS did not sell any land in the Seaport area. The did have an RFP out for their main facility at South Station, that the city of Boston wants developed into condo, office, retail. They also want to open up the access to the finacial district on Dorchester Ave.
With the Advent of the new Convention Center, it is an exciting time to be part of one of Bostons, new neighborhoods.

Well, politically the mayor is in favor of separating the "Seaport District" from South Boston. I sold a condominium at The Channel Center last year and recently heard that the USPS sold some land behind that building. I also have recently heard rumors of a Whole Foods Market coming into South Boston. I currently have a loft listing at The Trolley House on W 2nd Street which is just about at the dividing line between South Boston and the "Seaport District." Basicly, the prospects for the entire area are excellent. I love South Boston and highly recommed the neighbohood as agreat place to live.

South Boston is a large diverse neighborhood, with the Seaport on one end and Dorchester on the other. There has already been tremendous development in the Seaport area including the new Boston Convention Center, the new Institute for Contemporary Art, several hotels and office buildings, restaurants, and the Silver Line mass transit line that runs thru the neighborhood from South Station to Logan airport. There are also at least two very large development proposals making their way through the approval process so there's lot's more coming.

I've sold several lofts in the Seaport over this past year and would be happy to talk to you about housing options in the area at your convenience.
