Washington Village (235 Old Colony Avenue), South Boston
HSH is the transportation planning and traffic engineering consultant for the design and permitting of this transformative project located along Old Colony Avenue, Damrell Street, and Alger Street near Andrew Square in South Boston. The Project proposes the redevelopment of an underutilized five-acre site that will include eight new residential buildings – some with parking and most with ground floor retail – as well as a new street network, plaza, and green spaces. The Project will include approximately 656 residential units, 98,600 square feet (sf) of retail space, 560 parking spaces, 42,500 sf of new open space, and a total of approximately 1.5 acres of new public realm.
HSH prepared comprehensive transportation studies for Boston’s Article 80 permitting process and the Massachusetts Environmental Policy Act (MEPA) review process. HSH also assisted the Project team with complex design issues related to parking management, loading and building servicing, traffic circulation, roadway design, pedestrian accommodations, and transportation-related mitigation.
