This is terrific news and should be implemented immediately.  Public access to our natural beauty is imperative to the City’s continued growth in the years to come.  Not too far back, the suppression of the Central Artery bridged many areas of our city and created the Greenway.

From Bisnow:

“The City’s new proposal to spend $20M to upgrade 40 acres along the waterfront from the North End to Fort Point with open space, cultural attractions, and entertainment (fingers crossed for Ferris wheel) will elevate the rapidly changing district, BRA deputy director for waterfront planning Richard McGuiness tells Bisnow. The aim: upgrade the border of “our greatest natural resource: Boston Harbor.”

International Place is going to offer a steakhouse destination along the greenway in the Financial District. Who would of thought when International Place was built in 1987 that there would be a Palm restaurant where the central artery once stood?

Zagat reports, “the restaurant will take up a portion of the lobby at One International Place, an office tower whose lobby is replete in granite and marble. The 320-seat restaurant will take over the area where corner windows at Oliver Street and J.F. Fitzgerald Surface Road overlook the Rose Kennedy Greenway.”

Additional details about the Palm in Boston’s Financial District can be found on Zagat’s blog.

0 MassDOT: The Development Prevention Team?

Central Artery in BostonIf history is any clue into the future, it would be safe to assume that MassDOT is on the development prevention team. Many of these projects, such as this, provide a necessary “Bridge” between two neighborhoods of our city.  For example, the suppression of the Central Artery and the creating of the Greenway links the North End and Waterfront with the Financial District.
