Be informed. Get involved.
People interested in discussing how best to shape the future development and redevelopment of the fast-growing Fort Point Channel neighborhood of South Boston are invited to a half-day workshop with designers, community members, neighborhood visitors, and advocates. Boston Harbor Now has teamed up with the Fort Point Neighborhood Association, the Boston Society for Architecture, the Boston Society of Landscape Architects, and the Stone Living Lab, as well as partnering with the Boston Planning and Development Agency, to host the Fort Point Waterfront Community Design Workshop: Final Design Presentations, where teams of community members and designers will share proposed design ideas for the Fort Point while addressing inclusion, equity, climate change, and accessibility.
A set of presentations will be followed by a community conversation about the design elements that should be included in future projects and ideas that may apply to waterfront areas throughout the neighborhood. Participants can provide feedback on the proposed design ideas and suggest new ideas of their own. Members of the media and the community are welcome to join the workshop. Everyone is encouraged to register to attend the event here.

About the Fort Point Waterfront Community Design Program:
The Fort Point Waterfront Community Design Program was designed to collect input from residents and other local stakeholders in partnership with design professionals to create visual models for the future of the neighborhood’s waterfront. With several years of planning for climate change and new development occurring in the neighborhood, this is an opportunity to create comprehensive strategies for addressing threats of flooding and exclusivity by creating design proposals that provide climate adaptation strategies alongside accessibility and inclusion in the open spaces and ground floor building uses along the waterfront.
