Re: Summer St. Gondola

If I was the deep-pocketed private developer (say HYM Group for this example), I would negotiate some sort of market rate/affordable housing mixed use redevelopment of Maverick Landing in East Boston, more intensely develop the land (like 10 Eddy-level density buildings for 3,000+ units and commercial mix), and make the site's "public amenity" a gondola that travels SW across the harbor to Gov't Center Garage redevelopment. Apart of easements for the cable support towers, the station's would be on private land and fulfill a public good. I would imagine gondola-option for bike and pedestrian traffic across the harbor there would be much-appreciated, if not a dedicated pedestrian/bike link between Eastie and North End.
