The growth of the Seaport District has created a number of challenges and one of the prominent ones is parking. Massport is looking to offer some relief to this by building a 1,700 car garage atop the Pike.
The Boston Globe offers details on the proposed parking additions, noting it “would be built over a strengthened section of the turnpike tunnel near the World Trade Center complex. Although the site is about a third of a mile from the Seaport Square area, where visitors to Fan Pier and attractions like the Institute of Contemporary Art vie for parking with workers from the adjacent financial district, Massport said the parking garage would be vital for apartments and a planned hotel near the convention center.
