The BPDA is hosting a public meeting for the proposed project at 17 Farnsworth Street, a project located in the Fort Point neighborhood of Boston. The purpose of the meeting is to discuss the overall project, the potential impacts, and mitigation for the project. The meeting will include a presentation followed by questions and comments from the public.

Please note that the purpose of this meeting is different from that of a traditional community meeting. As part of the development review process, Impact Advisory Group (IAG) members work closely with BPDA staff to identify the impacts of a project and recommend appropriate community benefits to offset those impacts. IAG meetings prioritize discussion between the project proponent (i.e. the developer) and IAG members.

The Project proposes to replace the existing, 361-vehicle parking garage built in 1986 with four-story life science building with mechanical penthouse set back from the roof edges to minimize visibility from the ground. No onsite accessory parking, allowing both of today’s curb cuts on Farnsworth Street to be eliminated. Per Coastal Flood Resilience Overlay District, dry flood-proofed at least two feet above Sea Level Rise Base Flood Elevation (19.5 ft. BCB). LEED BD&C: Core and Shell Gold.
