Lewis Wharf Project Video Highlights Waterfront Access

The development team for the Lewis Wharf project have released a video highlighting the features of the proposal along with resident and business owner segments supporting the plan. From the proponent:

The Lewis Wharf project presents an exceptional opportunity to revitalize Lewis Wharf by replacing a surface parking lot, which has restricted access to the harbor for years, and dilapidated pilings with: almost 2.5 acres of public open space including 1.25 acres of park space; a new section of Harborwalk; and a new luxury hotel. The plan increases public access to the waterfront and creates a new North End park that will connect the North End to the downtown waterfront for more people to enjoy.

  1. The project looks good in the ‘movie’, doesn’t it? But when facing the water, I notice the right hotel has an ‘extension’ before the main hotel — a pre-entry bldg. ? It is larger than the left hotel. There will be lies, tricks, broken promises, and personally, I think it would ruin this neighborhood. And do we believe this project will be the final one? No sir. If we give a green light to this…..they will push harder for many more fancy projects. The proponent stated that there will be a new luxury hotel. A (singular) new hotel as opposed to two hotels? Do you think we are stupid or blind to your twists and turns?

  2. I haven’t done a whole lot of research but it sounds like this area would simply have a nice public park replace a crappy parking lot that I never go to anyway. Based on all the outrage I have to be missing something. I’m not sure that adding a couple small buildings on the waterfront would really make any difference to the skyline (which isn’t a particularly nice view of the airport anyway). Can someone help me understand what the drawbacks are?
