Landscape + Planning + Urbanism
Boston Harbor is poised for a second wave of transformation - recent decades of work and billions in investment have revitalized the harbor from an industrial wasteland posing significant health and safety risks to a celebrated resource for public recreation. These immensely successful initial efforts are now evolving with new priorities, opportunities and challenges. Today, equity and resiliency in the face of increasing population and changing climate conditions are initiating a new set of projects. This panel of designers, engineers, and non-profit agency leaders will discuss their role in ushering in an exciting new era for Boston's Waterfront.
Projects discussed will include; Moakley Park Vision Plan, Harborwalk 2.0, Climate Ready Downtown, Langone and Puopolo Parks and the Peddock’s Island Vision Plan. Emphasis will include evolution from visionary planning to implementable works, funding, leveraging investment in climate resiliency and formation of strategic partnerships, guidelines and early catalytic projects.
