Located in Boston’s Seaport, District Hall is an 8,000-square-foot multipurpose Innovation Center. Our team will work to accommodate your corporate and social needs, from our free public Lounge to our rentable meeting rooms and event spaces.
When the City of Boston announced the vision for the Seaport Innovation District, they called for a civic gathering space for innovators to get together and share ideas. District Hall was built through a collaborative public/private partnership and became the world’s first free-standing public innovation center.
The building was privately funded and built by Boston Global Investors as the first project in the 23-acre master plan for Seaport Square. The city invited the Cambridge Innovation Center (CIC) to create an active innovation hub concept. CIC developed the initial concept and design, provided construction and financial support, and accepted ongoing responsibility for the lease. Innovation Studio (then The Venture Cafe Foundation) partnered as the manager and operator of the innovation center, with The Briar Group joining as the hospitality partner managing Gather and Brew. In 2015 WS Development took over as the lead in Seaport Square’s development, fostering the district’s ongoing development.
Today, District Hall continues to anchor the Seaport as a civic innovation space offering an open public lounge, meeting, event, and demo space. Innovation Studio curates programs and events to support entrepreneurs and strives to make Distinct Hall an inclusive and inviting space for all innovators. We host hundreds of meetings and events annually, with more than 100,000 attendees and lounge users.
Innovation Studio is a nonprofit organization that aims to make innovation, entrepreneurship, and business ownership attainable through an empowering and inclusive network of community spaces and individualized pathways.
