The â Eastern Seaport Master Planâ is the design of a mixed-use neighborhood in South Boston, a site that has an enormous amount of potential to be the pinnacle of the Boston waterfront. Located in the cityâ s Seaport District, the master plan addresses the siteâ s deterioration as industry has declined. By reducing the impact of the necessity of the car through its incorporation into the urban fabric, making use of the roadâ s infrastructure, creating a clear distinction between the functions of long-term and short-term parking, capitalizing on the opportunity to be the cityâ s hub for water transit, and designing a street front for the mixed-use city blocks that encourages street life in Bostonâ s harsh climate, the master plan will create a dynamic urban neighborhood that functions as its own entity but ties back to Boston as part of the cityâ s call to reclaim the waterfront.
