Chinatown Park Edges Study
Utile worked with the Artery Business Committee (now a A Better City) on behalf of the large-scale property owners that surround the open space corridor along Surface Street, adjacent to Boston’s Chinatown. Utile proposed possible development scenarios within the context of the politically active Chinatown community and the active oversight of the Boston Redevelopment Authority (BRA) and the Massachusetts Turnpike Authority (the agency that controls the Central Artery/Tunnel project).
Utile attended community meetings, met with individual abutters, and the appropriate public agencies. In addition, Utile provided design review for the proposed Chinatown Park (designed by Carol R. Johnson Associates). Utile also proposed designs for the open spaces in the area not covered under the park contract.
