Two waterfront parcels in South Boston slated for seafood industry uses are now available through Request for Proposals (RFP's) by the Massachusetts Port Authority (Massport). Massport is soliciting proposals for parcels three and four - located at the western end of the Massachusetts Marine Terminal (MMT) in an 8-10 acre area designated as a seafood-processing district. This seafood- processing district is also located within the Marine Industrial Park, near the Boston Fish Pier, home to Boston's fishing fleet.
Parcels three and four measure 1.5 acres and roughly 3 acres, respectively, and are contemplated for uses including, but not limited to, seafood processing, cold storage, ice production, distribution for vessels and other industry users, commercial fishing, vessel support, etc.
The seafood district is one of the most active areas of development on the South Boston waterfront and is home to two new buildings dedicated to seafood processing operations. Both parcels offer excellent access to the regional highway system including direct access through the Ted Williams Tunnel, a direct route to Logan International Airport.
Excluding berthing infrastructure, parcel three has approximately 250 feet of water frontage that could be improved for vessel access. Parcel three is available for immediate use while parcel four will be available in early 2005. Proposals for one or both development sites may be submitted to Massport and are due by August 2, 2004.
For copies of the RFPs or for more information, contact Massport's Maritime Department at 617- 946-4435.
