The site of the original Boston Tea Party, Independence Wharf is strategically placed between the central business district and the South Boston Waterfront district. This prime location is walking distance from top finance company headquarters yet enjoys a waterfront location. The stunning boardroom overlooks Boston Harbor and there is a theatre-style meeting room. Or go to the observation deck on the 14th floor for unparalleled views. State capital Boston is a major US financial city and is the country's sixth largest economy. It also has several technology companies and is one of the country's top life sciences clusters. Tourism, conventions, publishing and the internationally-renowned city's colleges and universities contribute greatly to the regional economy. Major companies have chosen the Boston area for their headquarters including Liberty Mutual, Gillette and New Balance. And the historic port still plays a vital role.
