MassDOT has issued a Request for Information (RFI) from businesses, non-profit institutions, real estate developers, and community organizations interested in utilizing 10 or more parking spaces at the 432 space parking facility currently under construction beneath a large elevated portion of the I-93 South East Expressway in Boston.
The parking facility is being developed on approximately eight acres of property bounded by Albany Street and Frontage Road and adjacent to the South End neighborhood of Boston to the West, the Fort Point Channel and South Boston to the East. The parking is strategically located where I-90 and I-93 highway ramps converge with local roads, multimodal paths, transit connections, and the Fort Point Channel in an area transitioning from industrial to residential and commercial uses. MassDOT previously used the property for construction staging and storage.
MassDOT intends to develop the multi-use parking facility with activity, light and security 24/7/365, serving different customers throughout peak commuting hours, off-peak weekday hours, and weekends.
Phase 1 of the project scheduled for substantial completion in December 2013 includes construction of 235 parking spaces accessible from Albany Street, improved pedestrian conditions, increased lighting, and other improvements to the site.
Phase 2 scheduled for substantial completion in December of 2014 will include construction of approximately 192 parking spaces accessible from Traveler Street, a new multi-modal path connecting the South Bay Harbor Trail to Kneeland Street, and a new, transportation-themed public space which extends the Boston Harborwalk along the Fort Point Channel.
The RFI will be available for download on the MassDOT website: http://www.mass.gov/massdot/realestate
Responses are due by November 26.
