About this project

What happens to the ribbon of land being created by the depression of the Central Artery may be the most important development decision to face Boston in a generation.

Parcel 8

Area: 63,010 square feet (1.45 acres)

Bordered by: Surface Artery, Hanover Street, Salem Street, Cross Street, New Sudbury Street.

Master plan calls for: Open space, plaza with water feature, small community or arts building

Zoning: Recreation Open Space Subdistrict.

Notes: The master plan envisions this large area north of Salem Street as a "calm, neighborhood-oriented park space" with a major fountain to mask traffic noise. The zoning code says no structure on Parcel 8 may obstruct the "view corridor" from Tremont Street to the Old North Church.
