Case Study: The South Boston Waterfront Transportation Center

Cover of December 2020 Parking & Mobility magazineSouth Boston’s Seaport District has seen explosive development and growth in the last 10 years, so when it came time to add parking, it made sense to design and build a structure that would bring multiple modes of transportation together and help people get around no matter which mode made sense for them.

The South Boston Waterfront Transportation Center provides parking to support numerous user groups, including employees, residents of the neighboring condominium buildings, parking and valet needs for the future Omni hotel, and patrons visiting the Seaport. The structure includes:

  • 1,650 parking spaces.
  • A 600 square foot parking office suite.
  • A 700 square foot transportation concierge space.
  • An 850 square foot enclosed bicycle storage space.
  • Public bathrooms.

The structure is located above and supported by a section of the I-90 tunnel structure built as part of the Central Artery and Tunnel Project and offers multi-modal options to its users. Read about this comprehensive transportation center in the December issue of Parking & Mobility magazine.
