The Beacon Hill Civic Association has joined two other neighborhood groups in writing a joint letter to the state outlining their concerns about the massive redevelopment of the Government Center Garage. From the Beacon Hill Times:
The letter states that no city or state plan has addressed the “additional traffic, public transportation and infrastructure demands, which cannot be accommodated by existing systems.”According to the letter, the heights of the proposed buildings could also adversely affect air quality, as well as have negative wind and shadow impacts, in addition to creating a visual and structural barrier in the “West Parcel.”
Other overarching concerns cited in the letter include the apparent lack of comprehensive traffic and transit planning, and that a previous study neglected to take into account other major development proposals for the area, including the Massachusetts Eye and Ear Infirmary’s plans to a construct a 1,065-space, underground garage within the Charles River Esplanade.
