On October 26, approximately 50 Seaport District constituents including representatives of SAND, the Boston Society of Architects, the Boston Harbor Association, the South Boston Waterfront Committee and others participated in a Fan Pier planning workshop held by Urban Strategies, a waterfront urban planning team hired by the Pritzker Family -- owners of the 20-acre waterfront parcel.

The workshop convened in morning and afternoon sessions, during which participants discussed developmental ideals for the Fan Pier parcel and its future integration with the Seaport District. These comments are now being compiled into a set of Fan Pier Master Planning Principles to be used as development guidelines during the next phase of the project, as the Pritzker family and their architect/developer consider options for moving the project forward.

SAND is hosting a community meeting January at which representatives of Urban Strategies and Spaulding & Slye will present design concepts for this ongoing Fan Pier project, and will be inviting and responding to public comments. Please Attend! - click here to view Calendar
