Where is the Darwin Project Located?

Designing a New Great Place in a Great City

The Botanical Garden and Conservation Learning Center will lie at the heart of Boston and at the core of the New England region. It will be a successful institution not only because of its beauty and the relevancy of its mission, but also because of its Hub location

It will mark a southern gateway to the Rose Kennedy Greenway and open onto the front door of South Station – the center of rail and public transit for Boston and New England. Sixty-thousand workers and visitors pass by here twice daily.

You can walk a few steps to Chinatown, the Boston Harbor waterfront and Fort Point Channel, or to Boston’s financial and retail centers.

A short walk to the north of the site lays Boston’s primary visitor district including Quincy Market/Faneuil Hall with over 20 million annual visitors, the New England Aquarium, and Long Wharf - the region’s water transit center.

As a world class city, Boston will be enhanced by and benefit from, both culturally and economically, the addition of a welcoming botanical garden. It will brighten our cold winters and provide a unique environmental experience for residents and visitors from all over the world.
