Neponset Wharf Receives Approval by BCDC
Yesterday, after four years of planning and development, our Neponset Wharf project was approved by the Boston Civic Design Commission! The multi-faceted waterfront project was presented last night by our fearless leader, Kevin Deabler, as well as members of the team from RISE Together and OJB Landscape Architecture.
The project will transform the northern end of the Port Norfolk peninsula with the development of a community wharf and boathouse, 120 residential units, office and community meeting space, and a resilient landscape of native plantings and public walking paths.
Neponset Wharf was met with praise from the commissioners in attendance, who lauded the project team for improvements made to the landscape and architecture over the course of the public process.
We are thrilled with the progress the development team has made in bringing this project to life. Neponset Wharf will create a unique seaside destination in Dorchester, bring new jobs to the area, and prioritize wetland restoration and climate resiliency. Congratulations to the team! Next stop, BPDA approval!
