Richard McGuinness, Deputy Director of Waterfront Planning and his team will join us for a conversation about the Master Plan Update for the Boston Marine Industrial Park (BMIP), recently renamed the Raymond L. Flynn Marine Park (RFMP). The Master Plan was initiated to build upon the 1999 BMIP Master Plan and assess the current challenges and opportunities in and around the RFMP with the intent of developing recommendations to advance the Park’s mission and ensure the optimization of its assets. Since the completion of the first Master Plan there have been significant changes and investments made in and around the Park, including the Central Artery Tunnel Project, Boston Harbor Cleanup, the MBTA Silver Line Transitway and Boston Convention and Exhibition Center, among others, all of which have facilitated access, new development, and a dynamic mix of uses in the South Boston Waterfront. Within the RFMP there have been new facilities constructed to support seafood processing, motor freight, and ship repair, as well as a dramatic increase in jobs in the growth sectors of life sciences, advanced manufacturing, and research & development. The RFMP Master Plan Update endeavors to analyze the Park’s existing infrastructure and uses and how best to leverage the demands of new innovation economy uses in and around the RFMP to further the Park’s mission and establish a sustainable land use road map for future years within the context of the Port of Boston and the City's industrial ecosystem.
