Plans for a massive mixed-used development at an historic site in South Boston could include options for food.
According to an article in Eater Boston, L Street Station, which would reside at the site of the New Boston Generating Station (formerly the South Boston Edison Power Plant), may include a food hall as well as a market, with a rep for the developers mentioning that the food options would be located in "a beautifully renovated historic turbine hall" that dates back to the early 1900s and "features Italian glazed tile and large clerestory windows and directly fronts the proposed public waterfront open space." The development itself will have nearly two million square feet of space and will include hotel rooms, residential and office space, and retail space, with construction slated to begin in 2019. Eater notes that the timeline for the project is 15 years, so it could be awhile before the food hall and market are up and running.
The New Boston Generating Station/South Boston Edison Power Plant can be found near where Summer Street becomes L Street by the Reserve Channel. (More information on L Street Station can be found at http://www.lstreetstationboston.com/)
