Discover Newly Changed Plans For Seaport Square

updated 10/20/17: Seaport Square returns to BCDC on Tuesday, October 24 at 5pm, room 937A, City Hall. Public invited to attend. 

updated 10/18/17: Remember to submit public comments by end of day, October 27, 2017 (details below).

Last week (9/12/17) WS Development, who in 2015 purchased the remaining 12.5 acres of Seaport Square, filed a Supplemental Information Report (SIR) to their Notice of Project Change submitted seven months prior. The filing responds to the many public comments submitted from Boston residents, performing art organizations and others including the Boston Planning & Development Agency (BPDA) and Boston Parks & Recreation Department. WS Development also filed an amendment to Seaport Square Planned Development Area 78  three days later.

Two of the largest calls came in response to the jettisoning of a 200,000 sf arts center and the elimination of Seaport Hill Park.
