The L Street Power Station is located in South Boston at the corner of Summer St and East First Street. It was initially built at the turn of the 19th century as a power plant that supplied much of Boston’s growing energy needs and was operated as a power plant through the beginning 21st century. It was purchased by a joint venture between Hilco and Redgate in April 2016 who plans to redevelop it into a vibrant, arts & industry themed, mixed-use project that celebrates its special history. It sits on the Reserve Channel to the north and will be an unforgettable addition to Boston’s waterfront.
