Looks like public officials are taking steps to ensure the public has access to the South Boston waterfront. According to and article written by Jon Chesto in the Boston Globe, The Boston Planning & Redevelopment Agency has launched a formal process to find new uses like a library, museum, theater, or concert hall for 13,000 square feet in the Seaport’s newest luxury condo development at 50 Liberty, on Fan Pier.
Potential non-profits organizations will get a tour of the new space on Thursday afternoon at 3pm. The space will be offered a discounted rate well below market value.
Just down the street a similar project took place. On the ground level of Pier 4 – a 21 story luxury development now resides the Society of Arts and Crafts.
State law requires developers to provide public access to the water – i.e. the Harborwalk. This new process could be another way for the public to gain access to the waterfront.
What do you think? What non-profit or organization would you like to see go in at 50 Liberty?
