Trinity Financial: Trinity is back for another go at Parcel 13 with a proposal that consists of 350 apartments and retail space. The project would consist of only 100 spaces and will certainly be a point of contention if this project gets to a community review. However, with the situation of this project at the center of a transportation hub, owning a car in this transit oriented development would not be a necessity as transportation options are abundant in the immediate area.
In The Meantime... Lets activate the space to show how vital it could be.
Whichever project is chosen, if any, development is still a long way off from becoming a reality. Many months of bid review, community involvement and municipal and state approvals will be necessary before this project is ever able to break ground. The bridge over the Pike serves as an access point for residents and visitors to access both the Back Bay and Fenway Neighborhoods and, on busy summer nights when the Red Sox are in town, this sidewalk becomes littered with sports fans heading to Fenway.
