SoWa Power Station Illuminus

Architectural Icon / Event Venue

The SoWa Power Station! Everyone in Boston is familiar with this iconic masterpiece of late-industrial glamor. Built in 1896 as the world’s largest electric power generation plant, it housed twelve coal-fired boilers on two levels and produced enough electricity to run the street cars owned by the West End Street Railway Company. Allowed to moulder for decades, the property’s structural elements have recently been rescued and restored. Used to host various events such as Boston Magazine's "Best of Boston", Illuminus, the November Project, and the Boston Bacon & Beer Festival, the property is poised for whatever the 21st Century throws its way.
