Greater Ashmont Main Street was designated as one of Boston’s Main Street Districts in the summer of 1999. It was originally called St. Mark’s Area Main Street, but went through a formal re-branding process starting in 2014, including the organizational name change, which became final in 2016. Our commercial district includes more than 130 businesses in almost 400,000 square feet of commercial and institutional space, and serves more than 30,000 residents, workers and commuters.
