updated 7/13/21 with meeting presentation and meeting video.

The Boston Planning & Development Agency is hosting a public meeting on Monday, July 12th at 6pm regarding new waterfront parks and climate resilient flood protection at 244 - 284 A Street (former Gillette Channelside parking lot) a 6.5 acre mixed development with required open space. 

What do you want to see in South Boston's newest waterfront parks, and will these new parks also protect our inner neighborhoods from flooding?  Will it be a model for coastal resilience and equitable, high quality open space?

Let the Boston Planning and Development Agency and the developer, Related Beal, know your thoughts on: 
  • Public Parks Design & Programming 
  • Sea Level Rise & Stormwater Flood Protection
  • Climate Resilience
This is critical point in the approval process, decisions made over the next couple of months will not be changed.

244 - 284 A Street, the 6.5 acre development along the Fort Point Channel (aka former Gillette Channelside parking lots), is resuming the approval process from the City and requires feedback from the neighborhood.


The Waterfront Parks: Last year, the community established three themes focused on urban wilderness, community living room and flex space/outdoor gallery. Do the park designs meet neighborhood needs and expectations?

Climate Resilience: Will the proposed climate resilient solutions protect the site and neighborhood from sea level rise and stormwater flooding?
