The Boston Redevelopment Authority is pleased to announce today that the Massachusetts Department of Transportation has transferred approximately $191,000 in funds to be used for the redesign and construction of Chinatown Gateway Park, also known as Mary Soo Hoo Park.
Back in October 2009, Mayor Menino and BRA Director John Palmieri joined the Chinatown community along with state transportation officials to announce that a design team, Stephen Stimson Associates, had been selected for the renovations. The BRA is in the midst of hosting community meetings to solicit feedback in order to finalize the design before the work begins. The next public meeting is expected to be held on February 25, 2010. Construction is expected to start this summer. Visit the BRA here.
