Project Description
The Project envisions improved and expanded public sidewalks along its sections of First Street, which borders the residential area, with thoughtfully designed open spaces, high-quality landscaping, and new building heights and massing that respect and connect with the adjacent South Boston residential neighborhood. The Project is proposed to include approximately 1.7 million square feet of development in 7 new buildings, of which approximately 1.1 million square feet is anticipated to be located on the approximately 6 acres of land along West First Street and approximately 600,000 square feet along Pappas Way. Proposed building uses would include a variety of commercial and employment-based opportunities, with a portion of residential housing that responds to the needs of the neighborhood. Visioning for ground floor uses could include a neighborhood grocery store, new fitness and wellness options for the neighborhood, and locally owned eateries, with a building massing and heights calibrated to respect the existing structures along First Street and the residential section of South Boston, and with increasing building heights moving north, away from West First Street.
