Tavistock Development Company, commercial property owners along Commercial Wharf in Boston’s North End, are hosting an information session at Joe’s American Bar & Grill on Tuesday October 15 at 6 p.m. to share information about their proposed redevelopment along the pier.
Tavistock acquired commercial property along Commercial Wharf in 2016 and has been working with members of the CWECA Board to understand the property and its history. Now that they have initial concepts and ideas of how they want to redevelop buildings on the wharf, Tavistock has announced they’d like to hold a meeting to engage the larger community.
Tavistock’s current concept plans include the idea of creating an inn and restaurant in multiple buildings along the pier. One of those buildings would replace the existing Joe’s Waterfront building (Lot 8), another would replace the existing partly burned building (Lots 6 & 7).
Current plans do not include making any changes to the existing Boston Yacht Haven Inn & Marina (Lot 1).
The proposed redevelopment also includes a new, pedestrian Harborwalk that would extend the full length of the pier. Tavistock states this will provide enhanced public access to the waterway and additional protections against flooding.
