An Extraordinary Location
The appeal of Fan Pier’s location is easy to understand. With the Financial District’s dramatic skyline as a backdrop, Fan Pier links Boston’s central business district to its dynamic new waterfront and busy working harbor. Both its high-visibility location and unique accessibility allow you to experience and enjoy Boston Harbor as an unparalleled place to live, work, dine and socialize.
From Fan Pier you can immediately access major highways or take a quick walk across the Old Northern Avenue Bridge to the Financial District, the Fort Point Channel to downtown, Quincy Market or the North End. Also within walking distance is South Station, where you’ll find the subway and major commuter trains including the high-speed Acela to New York and Washington D.C. The ferry commuter boats and water taxis to Logan Airport have conveniently made their pick-up and drop-off points on Fan Pier and Boston’s Silver Line subway has a stop here too.
But why leave the neighborhood? This is Boston’s hottest dining destination with tantalizing menus awaiting you at Strega Waterfront and Empire restaurants on Fan Pier, along with casual American bistro food at Sam’s at Louis. A couple of blocks along the waterfront is Liberty Wharf with its exciting new restaurants and entertainment. Clothing store Louis has also made its home on Fan Pier bringing world-class fashion and accessories to the delight of this ever-growing neighborhood.
Culture is alive and well at the Institute of Contemporary Art (ICA), an architecturally acclaimed building built right on Fan Pier. The ICA plays host to a fabulous array of modern art from around the globe as well hosting stimulating exhibitions and performances in their outdoor theatre overlooking the Boston Harbor. Major convention centers and renowned hotels are also within blocks of Fan Pier.
There’s plenty of parking for your vehicle at Fan Pier, or you can dock your boat at the six-acre Fan Pier Marina and hop off to enjoy all that this amazing neighborhood has to offer. Whether you work or play on Fan Pier, you’ll always enjoy fine dining, high-end shopping and the breathtaking views along the HarborWalk, with its almost 40 stunning miles of pathways for walking, running or bicycling.
There is no other location on Boston’s waterfront like Fan Pier. Front-row seating directly on the water, in the heart of Boston Harbor, has made it the premier waterfront property in the city. Trading in towering concrete for water views, Fan Pier’s extraordinary location is perhaps the ultimate amenity: an urban experience in a neighborhood environment.
