If anyone hasn't noticed, there is a high res/ higher quality version behind the link.

Something is seriously wrong with this project. Delays delays delays.

Re: Martin's Park | Children's Wharf | Fort Point

I work right by this park and it bothers me every time I see it, that the play wooden ship's front bow/mast/whatever its called is not centered on the boat, but offset like that. My own little mildly irritating OCD mind acting up.

Re: Martin's Park | Children's Wharf | Fort Point

The lack of progress from the pictures posted last February and March is shocking. Have they been waiting for certain, custom made materials? Is $ an issue? This is going to end up being a year and a half or more long project which seems absurd.

Agreed. No idea what's taking so long. Work nearby and it's the slowest project ever. It's a PLAYGROUND!

From the city website

https://www.boston.gov/sites/default...18-10/oct3.pdf

Schedule update:
We wanted to update the community that the anticipated construction
completion timeframe has been pushed back to the spring. Due to the
resiliency work that was described in a recent update, the timeframe of
the work has been extended. Unfortunately, this extension of the work
has pushed the schedule into winter months. Cold weather is not
conducive to installing several weather sensitive items in the park such
as rubber surfacing and vegetation planting.
The contractor and the City will continue to push to finish the park as
efficiently and effectively as possible without sacrificing design or
quality. As we all know, weather can be unpredictable and we cannot
foresee how far into the winter months work will be able to continue.
We will continue working as long as the weather allows and will
re-assess park completion schedules and grand opening activities later
in the year as we get a better sense of how long work can continue.

Site Resiliency:
A reminder about resiliency...
During the construction portion of this project, the Climate Ready Boston Report was released. The information provided in this report raised the flood elevation. The park was designed using previously
released flood elevations. Due to this, design and engineering work needed to be completed to make sure that the park took into consideration this information and planned for future resiliency. This
created the need to shift some of the focus of construction onto the design aspect of the work. What was important to us was that the resiliency worked with the current design in order to still provide the park design promised to the community while making the Park more resilient. The design work associated
with this shift has been completed and the construction moving foward will incorporate these important resliency strategies.
