The Boston Redevelopment Authority reviewed two scenarios under consideration for North End development guidelines along the Greenway at this week’s NEWRA meeting. As part of its Greenway District Planning Study, the BRA is looking to “plan for growth” according to Peter Gori. Both scenarios include several new buildings along the existing length of Cross Street.
One of the first spots likely to be designated for development is the BRA’s parking lot, Parcel 11B, also known as the Fulton St. parking lot.Parcel 11A by the tunnel ramp could also be developed with air rights. The sidewalk areas in front of the old Martignetti’s and existing Pace/Maria’s locations could have new zoning recommendations to replace and expand those buildings to 55 feet high with more depth bringing them closer to the roadway on Cross Street.
