Coppersmith in South Boston May Lose Its Home; Biotech Building Could Replace It

by Marc Hurwitz

It looks like yet another South Boston restaurant may be facing an uncertain future due to new development.

According to an article from Universal Hub, Coppersmith on West 3rd Street could see its warehouse building demolished to make way for a life sciences building that would house biotech companies, with the plan being to tear down other structures at the site. The post mentions that plans for the project will be submitted by late March, and that the proposal will include a six-story 210,000-square-foot building that is 95 feet high and possibly having ground-floor retail space.

Coppersmith, which first opened in September of 2015, includes a cafe and a dining area, a rooftop bar, indoor food trucks, and more in an old industrial warehouse.

The address for Coppersmith is 40 West 3rd street, South Boston, MA, 02127. Its website can be found at
