Re: Parcel K | Northern Avenue | Seaport

I kinda like the two buildings enclosing the carport / loading area, and the second level outdoor area - has a sort of vaguely midcentury, and warm weather locale vibe to it.

Re: Parcel K | Northern Avenue | Seaport

I guess it's really happening... the parking lot entrances were barricaded yesterday.

Re: Parcel K | Northern Avenue | Seaport

Hmm. Well what's been the plan for this? The parcels appear to be owned by the Commonwealth and not MassPort, not that it makes that much difference in the end, right?

I've never heard of anything proposed for here.

Re: Parcel K | Northern Avenue | Seaport

So this project has taken away 15 angled parking spaces on Northern Ave and prob 5 other spaces on Congress. How can Massport allow them to permanently take down these spaces plus the hundreds of lot spaces and not expect problems in the Spring? 0 public input, Massport.

This project has gone through a typical BPDA review with public meetings and so forth.

That said, I find it hard to learn about project unless I really try to. I'm not sure what the answer is but more communication about meetings would be great. Checking the BPDA website is probably the best way to know what's going on, which is less than idea.

I would expect (hope?) the new "Transportation Center" garage will be functional by the time Seaport wakes up for the season.

Re: Parcel K | Northern Avenue | Seaport

Also, here's a progress shot as of last week. Since then they've taken the light posts down. I am "lucky" enough to watch this project develop from my living room window.

(Waiting for someone to come around that corner one night and hit the BLACK jersey barrier).

It's driving through it. It's the round-about in front of Yankee Lobster. Had to have been at least a foot of water there during high tide.
