Does North street need to be a passthrough after the tunnel service entrance? It's primarily a parking lot. Only the school opens on to it. A large garage at Cross Street specifically to support the North End would eliminate parking pressures and make taking back streets for life more palatable.
Eliminating that piece of North Street alongside the Callahan Tunnel portal would be a big help in developing the parking lot parcel. Taking out North Street would ensure there's room for the columns to support an air rights building over the Callahan Tunnel portal, There could still be a wide sidewalk along the west side of the North Street location. As part of the new development, dedicate part of the parking to North End residents to make up for the loss of North Street parking, as you said.
