Developers also have big plans for Eastie’s waterfront.
Roseland Property Co. has proposed building Portside at Pier One, a mixed-use development on 26 acres of waterfront land and piers on Marginal Street. The project would include 490 residential units, retail space, a restaurant, and a day-care center. The marina and docks would also be refurbished.
The project would also include a public landing and a new marine services building. It will also add 2,300 feet to the city’s Harborwalk along the water. Meanwhile, the Clippership Wharf project would revive an old wharf on Lewis Street. Plans include building retail stores and 400 condos on 13 acres of waterfront.
Both Clippership Wharf and Portside at Pier One will have views of downtown Boston. The projects could break ground as early as next spring, the Boston Redevelopment Authority said.
