Turns out, this latest proposal is a $1Billion mega complex of two towers and a large indoor/ outdoor marketplace rivaling it’s neighbor across the street in Faneuil Hall. My first impression of this project is that with a new administration in city hall and plenty of public space, this project may actually have a good shot as becoming reality and heading to the BRA for approval in Fall 2014.
Check out the pictures of the latest development here.
According to an email received today from Chiofaro Co., it looks like Don Chiofaro and Ted Oatis are moving forward with their plans for a new development at theHarbor Garage Sitenext to the New England Aquarium. It sounds like we’ll hear some of the teams placemaking ideas for the new site as well as the teams latest thoughts on how to enliven the public realm around any new development on the property.
Dear Friends –
We are writing to let you know about an important upcoming meeting related to the Harbor Garage project. This Wednesday, June 25 at 3:00 pm, at Atlantic Wharf’s Fort Point Room, we will be making a presentation to the Municipal Harbor Planning Advisory Committee. As part of this presentation, we will be sharing the first concepts for our new vision for the Harbor Garage site. We are very excited about the ideas we’re going to share, and we think you will be, as well.
We hope you’ll be able to join us, and we’d invite you to reach out to colleagues, friends and others who have an interest in urban design, great public spaces, or the future of Boston generally. The Harbor Garage is an extremely important site for the future of our Greenway and our waterfront, and we’d love to see an audience that truly reflects not only the Boston of today, but the Boston of tomorrow. If you are inspired enough to offer a word or two in support on Wednesday, all the better!
Please don’t hesitate to contact us at email@example.com with any questions.
We hope to see you Wednesday!
Don & Ted
