Boston's Next Boomzone ~ Marine Industrial Park

I was visiting MIT alums Reshma Shetty, Tom Knight, Jason Kelly, and colleagues at Ginkgo Bioworks earlier today and was not only pleased to see their growing synthetic biology business and lab operations, but also to really get to know the Boston Marine Industrial Park where they're located... This area just beyond the historic warehouses of the Fort Point Channel / Boston Wharf district used to be the US's South Boston Naval Annex. Today it's incredibly well connected to transport and civic infrastructure -- and I'm excited about this area as Boston's next boomzone.
