Climate Ready South Boston Report by Arcadis, Halvorson Design, the Woods Hole Group, and CivicMoxie for the City of Boston is currently underway and about to be released. Principal Robert Adams and landscape designer Olivia Fragale of Halvorson Design have curated a walking tour to discuss coastal conditions, sea level rise, and neighborhood solutions for protecting South Boston from rising sea levels and storm surges. The walking tour will begin at the Binford Street Park within the Fort Point neighborhood and take participants through Fan Pier, past the ICA, down Seaport Blvd, and conclude at South Boston Maritime Park. Topics for discussion relate to site-specific conditions highlighting flood pathways, water quality, and design opportunities. This is a fantastic opportunity to hear about the short- and long-term interventions that will be implemented between now and 2070 to help protect and enhance Boston’s most exposed neighborhood.
Special thanks to the City of Boston and the Boston Society of Landscape Architects and the BSLA Emerging Professional Network. Please join us after the tour for drinks at Whiskey Priest.
