“E X I S T I N G STRUCTURE TO REMAIN lB – Pier #5
lB’ -None (water parcel)
PROPOSED USE – Interim use for marina base facility and marina in conjunction with adjacent parcel lB’.
ULTIMATE USE – 62 townhouses constructed on pier with 62 garage parking spaces.
The initial work on Pier 5 will be to construct marina facilities with related services and the installation of anchored floating slips for boats adjacent to the pier. The ultimate plan for the pier calls for the construction of 2~-story townhouse units along the edges maintaining public access to public open space at the end. Enclosed garages will be provided for each unit with vehicular access from the pier.”
Shows Building 197 retained as residential, but still with Bldg. 197 without wings or underground parking and Pier 5 now not defined. The “Original SIn” of Constellation Wharf, a non “Water Dependent Use”, intruding into our public Coastal Waters and blocking vistas to the harbor is shown.
An agreement was made with original developer “Immobilarie” that in order to allow the Flagship Wharf developer to add the East and West wings and the parking under, townhouses shown on Pier 5 (See
development proposal by Anderson Notter) would be substituted for those development rights and eliminated from Pier 5. This agreement was confirmed by Immobilarie and Immobilarie Development Team members, Navy Yard Community Representatives, colleagues at Anderson/Notter/ Finegold Architects, etc., but this agreement document has somehow, mysteriously, disappeared.
1985-1995 there was relative silence until these projects were proposed:
We should pin up this photo of BRA’s huge 10 story plus Pier Plan and compare the options whenever Courageous Sailing Center has a fund raiser to support teaching Boston kids to sail. How is this for a wind shadow?
