Harbor Garage, Boston
HSH is a strong proponent of community improvement and transformation. Many of our projects have transformed the Boston skyline, as is planned for the Harbor Garage Tower. At present, the Harbor Garage in Downtown Boston serves as a parking resource for the New England Aquarium and city visitors, but is also viewed as an eye sore among the community. Owner of the development, Don Chiafaro, has proposed the redevelopment of Habor Garage into residential, office, and retail space towers.
HSH is in the preliminary stages of determining the transportation impact of the redevelopment. This impact includes a net change in vehicular traffic to and from the site and increases in pedestrians, bicyclists, and transit passengers to the area. We’re contributing the transportation planning components to the City of Boston’s Article 80 and MEPA’s permitting requirements.
