Iron Works

National Development is partnering with AEW Capital Management to develop a 2 million-square-foot, two-city-block project in South Boston named Iron Works. Iron Works will include two life-sciences buildings, spanning a combined 650,000 square feet, as well as two residential buildings and 55,000 square feet of restaurant and retail space currently in the late stages of permitting. The project also features a revitalized former manufacturing complex at 10-80 Old Colony Avenue, which previously served as office, now transformed into creative office, restaurant and retail space, and fitness and outdoor amenity spaces. It includes tenants Castle Island Brewing, Tatte Bakery, Rock Spot Climbing, a pop-up spin studio, and the headquarters for Freight Farms, an agriculture tech company. PKL, a 21,000-square-foot pickleball/restaurant/entertainment space, and Mei Mei a dumpling factory and café are scheduled to open Spring 2022.
