Waterfront Civic/Cultural Space Planning Study
The Waterfront Civic/Cultural Space Planning Study is intended to assess the existing and pending civic/cultural uses and future opportunities across waterfront areas in Boston to inform more equitable planning, design and tenanting approaches for spaces provided through Chapter 91 regulations.
In addition, this planning study is anticipated to update the City’s evidence base on civic/cultural uses, space needs, FPA outcomes, and design and operational processes. At its core, this planning study will inform ongoing development projects with relevant civic/cultural, FPA, and affordable retail space commitments, particularly in neighborhoods such as Dorchester, Fort Point, Charlestown, and East Boston.
