Ding ding. The waterfront is changing rapidly, but it’s a quite small % of East Boston by area. Moreover, the non-Hispanic white population keeps shrinking as a % with most new residents being immigrants. Seems like a (at least partially) good outcome!No way. You go 5 streets back from the water and its barely touched.
Stick -- it is Pier 2 -- Massport put out an RFP for the Phase III -- there was only one bidder the Trustees for Reservations [seems like it was somehow an arrangement in advance]Does anyone know what piers park phase 3 is supposed to be?
"Piers Park III will be a resilient oasis and add to the incredible system of parks and open space this community already enjoys", Madaro claims.”
“Piers Park Phase III is conceived as a 3.8-acre addition of greenspace to the existing Piers Park on the East Boston waterfront. The site is located adjacent to the Phase II site, along Marginal Street. ”
From that description the only thing I can imagine would be that phase 2 is built on pier 2. I just dont know why they wouldnt just say pier 2 then...
But its not adjacent to the phase 2 site. So I guess it would have to be the pier 2 site. The closest st is marginal so I guess they can say its “along” it. Hopefully if this is not it, this becomes phase 4 though. It also has its own pier here as well so this could add even more to the site.
