Copley Wolff Design Group’s design includes a park/plaza space along the waterfront which provides a link to the North End and enhances pedestrian access to the Charles River Dam. Landscape scope includes raised planters with trees, shrubs, and a green space; a harborwalk along the water; and a large pedestrian stair from the Washington Street Bridge to the pier below. There are also interpretive elements highlighting the history of the site.
The mix of pedestrian and vehicular access along the southern edge of the site was carefully addressed through the installation of bollards, pavement variations, and grade changes to ensure a safe operation for all uses.
