The waterfront is abuzz about the new houseboats that have recently found a home at the Lewis Wharf marina. (See Exciting Waterfront Living Opportunity at Lewis Wharf!). We know that the marina owner didn’t bother to ask the condo association, that is now looking into the appropriate regulations and legal issues.
In case you were thinking “affordable housing,” similar houseboats rent for $225/day according to SleepAFloat.com. It is not clear if the units are simply being stored for the winter or if the owner intends to start renting them out where issues of trash removal and waste pump-out become more relevant.
While the neighbors and developer go at it, a creative observer came up with these colorful renderings of what could become of the new “Shantytown on Boston Harbor.”
