The Distillery, located at 516-524 East Second St. involves the redevelopment of a 175-year-old South Boston rum distillery. The whopping 179,384 sq. ft building will soon contain 68 loft-style residential units comprised of 38 studios and 30 studio apartments. Included is a mix of artist live/work, an art gallery, greenhouse, retail space, and 123 garage parking spaces. The existing distillery will continue to be preserved. Designed with Icon Architects, it will ultimately include artist live/work studios, loft style residences, underground music practice rooms, an open courtyard venue for performances, a restaurant, a market, a greenhouse, galleries, retail space, an artist residency program, rooftop gardens, open green space, and public artworks.
