The Boston Redevelopment Authority, supports a public Pier 5 park and withdraws privatized development Request for Proposals.
The Pier 5 Association (P5A) is pleased the authority is highly supportive of public open space and ensuring access to Boston harbor in historic Charlestown Navy Yard. The authority “enthusiastically supports increased open space and/or park creation at Pier 5 through philanthropic or private financing.”
P5A is also grateful for the support of the more than 3200 signatures and donations from the Charlestown community advocating a waterfront park on Pier 5 rather than a private residential/commercial development.
In a statement released by the BRA states it would also be willing to accept an asking price of $0 for Pier 5 if this was economically necessary to support additional public open space or other exceptional public benefits on Pier 5.
The public is excited to revive Pier 5 as a public park.
