Help Shape The Future of The Fort Point Waterfront

updated 11.14.22 with Office Hours conference room. 

How we view our waterfront is forever changing in response to: neighborhood growth, sea level rise, increased precipitation, storms and heat island impacts; development pressures, and our own vision of what we want it to look like and who we want it to be for- residents of Boston and the Commonwealth and visitors. 

With that in mind, FPNA and Boston Harbor Now along with the Boston Society for Architecture (BSA), Boston Society of Landscape Architects (BSLA), Stone Living Lab, and BPDA are pleased to introduce Fort Point Waterfront Community Design. The program is a series of events over the next two months to build upon past work and further develop design concepts and new ideas for the waterfront that we hope will assist property owners up and down the channel. 

As discussed at our September Neighborhood Gathering, we invited you to a join us at the Octoner 19th kickoff. The October 19, 2022 kickoff offered a briefing of past and current planning efforts along, around, and across the Fort Point Channel and provide an opportunity for neighbors to join teams composed of designers (architects and landscape architects) and other local stakeholders to create waterfront designs instead of react. 

The concluding conversation and final presentations on November 19th will provide a forum for teams to share their design ideas and an opportunity for all participants to weigh in on the elements that they hope to see integrated in future development, redevelopment, and other projects in the area -- local preferences for "Harborwalk 2.0" pieces that address coastal resilience, inclusion and equity, and access and connectivity from the water's edge to the landward boundaries of the Massachusetts Public Waterfront Act, Chapter 91. 

In between there will be "office hours" for teams to check in with the organizers and work together. The office hours are: 

  • Wednesday, October 26 - 4:00 pm to 8:00 pm via Zoom
  • Tuesday, November 1 - 3:00 pm to 7:00 pm at Midway Artist Studios, 15 Channel Center St.
  • Monday, November 7 - 4:00 pm to 8:00 pm via Zoom
  • Friday, November 11 - 8:00 am to 1:00 pm via Zoom
  • Monday, November 14 - 3:00 pm to 7:00 pm at the Hamilton Conference room, 2nd floor, 300 A Street (Red Hat building)
Looking forward to seeing everyone this Saturday, November 19 from 9:30am - 12:30pm at Artists for Humanity, 100 W. 2nd St. R.S.V.P. today.
