The SoWa Power Station

540 Harrison Ave

Architectural Icon & Event Venue

The SoWa Power Station in an iconic masterpiece of late-industrial glamor. Built in 1896 as the world’s largest electric power generation plant, it housed twelve coal-fired boilers and produced enough electricity to run the street cars owned by the West End Street Railway Company. The century-old property’s structural elements have recently been rescued and restored, transforming it into a blank canvass for community, celebration, and innovation. The Power Station has hosted events such as Boston Magazine's "Best of Boston", Illuminus, the November Project, HubWeek, the Boston Bacon & Beer Festival, the SoWa Winter Festival, and private events. This stunning property is poised for whatever the 21st Century throws its way.
