"Long envisioned as Boston's smart growth frontier, the 300-acre waterfront district is expected to keep a generation’s worth of high-end development in the regional core. Mature transit systems like Boston’s Massachusetts Bay Transportation Authority (MBTA) spawn transit-oriented development (TOD) projects all the time; but a whole district, planned and built from scratch, is another matter... Twenty years ago, nothing guaranteed the new development district a transit-oriented future; the term did not even exist. But five seminal public policy decisions have combined to make the South Boston waterfront a TOD showcase."
