Located at the Intersection of Creativity & Community 


Previously known as a rundown warehouse district, SoWa has since experienced a dramatic renaissance, blossoming into a world-renowned retail & artistic community, and drawing the interest of developers, restaurateurs, and cutting-edge businesses.

Spreading out from the artist studios, galleries and shops on Thayer Street (450 & 460 Harrison Ave), SoWa is viewed as the creative center of Boston's South End neighborhood. Originally derived from a shortening of "South of Washington", SoWa spans the area from Mass Ave to Herald St (East-to-West) and from Shawmut Ave to Albany St (North-to-South).
