The SoWa Arts District
SoWa, or the “South of Washington Street” neighborhood is a section of the South End spanning east to west, from Massachusetts Avenue to Herald Street, and north to south, from Washington Street to Albany Street.
What was once known as the mill and warehouse district where merchandise was created, stored, and shipped, has since seen a complete overhaul of redevelopments and changing use. Today it is a highly desirable neighborhood known for numerous galleries, design studios, one-of-a-kind boutique shops, restaurants, the Whole Foods Market, and residential condos. Additional attractions include special event days known as First Fridays and Sowa Sundays.
Situated in the center of the district, The Jordan Lofts has all of this to offer as well as fantastic views to the north of the Prudential Center, Hancock Tower and Back Bay skyline. Around the corner there are manicured parks and playgrounds. Beyond those lie the red brick and tree-lined streets of the South End.
