Unique among any previous development on City-owned land, this proposal was sponsored and funded by a coalition of local residents. It embodies the recreational, open space and aesthetic goals formulated by the group for the development of this 2.2 acre waterfront site. Facing Boston Harbor and located on the edge of Boston's historic North End, the proposal includes the creation of a public park above a 155 car underground garage, plus a small boat marina, a restaurant pavilion, a ferry-boat dock and a pedestrian promenade along the water's edge. Located adjacent to the Pilot House, an important remnant of Boston's 19th Century waterfront, the proposed development also includes a 52 unit apartment building. This structure reflects the massing of the Pilot House, recalling other traditional pier structures.
