Does any portion of this sit on top of the tunnels?

Not the CAT per se, but its over a couple exit ramps. One to the callahan tunnel and one that empties out to ground level on the next greenway parcel. You can follow the curve on maps.

Exit to ground level.


Then if you look at the right trench and imagine how youd exit right of the CAT and under this parcel then curve and line up to the tunnel you can see that too.




- - Edit, I just checked on maps and its actually shown on there too.


The yellow parts are uncovered roads. The tunnel on the left is in an open air trench and the top is the exit ramp. The green upside down triangle on the right is parcel 9.

^^^Literally drove past this a couple hours ago and was surprised to see it this far along. Only downside is it's going to block the Union Oyster House sign from much of the Greenway. Small price to pay to make this area feel like less of an open wasteland.

Now that its above ground it should go up really fast, its only a couple floors tall.. 6 plus mech screen. It has 2 floors poured, so its 1/3 of the way done lol.

This development was absolutely perfect for the area. Nice infill. Good amount of tourists (Could be up to 500 a night when fully booked!) Its scaled appropriately and fills in the messiness of this square. And it will help out the restaurants/businesses in the area by topping off the area with a steady flow of tourists/business people. Its canopy too. So they will definitely be eating out.
