The Parcel 12 Project will repair a barren section of the urban streetscape in the heart of Boston by building a new mixed-use development over an active interstate highway. The project utilizes innovative multimodal facilities to knit together several distinct and disconnected Boston neighborhoods disrupted by the I-90 expressway. This webinar will highlight a unique public-private partnership between the City of Boston and Samuels & Associates. The project will activate the surrounding streets, repair the discontinuity in the urban street wall, and greatly improve neighborhood connectivity.  Through a highly collaborative and inclusive process, the project development team led by Samuels with VHB as lead engineer identified a series of creative solutions to utilize highway air rights to greatly expand the public realm, build out a low stress bikeway and enhance transit connections.
