Re: SBWTC /South Boston Waterfront Transportation Center | Seaport

Betting this gets demolished and redeveloped into office before 2030. This land is too valuable to use for "open space" and parking

You can actually see it in the render too:

Re: SBWTC /South Boston Waterfront Transportation Center | Seaport

^^Yeah, my bad. With the conversation on here centered mainly on its status as mostly a parking garage, I overlooked the details of SBWTC's 'multimodal' features.

I'm not holding my breath, but it would be cool if there was some sort of ceiling art/lighting sculpture along the walkway to make it more inviting. Any plans for that?

A cross-block connector is a great idea in this land of huge blocks. But one that runs through a parking garage is going to take a lot of work to feel safe after dark. Not that it cant be done, but my suspicion is that it is going to end up a long, empty path with no easy exist that is super creepy. But if it's better then hurray.
