FPA was retained by Diversified Automotive, Inc. to lead and manage the environmental review and permitting of several key projects that support the 80-acre automotive transportation center in Charlestown, MA. The facility is owned and leased by Massport with its main function of vehicle imports and exports for the automobile market in the northeastern US. Autoport also has several supporting water-dependent marine industrial businesses. FPA permitted the removal of the largest building within the site on Mystic Pier to make it available for the recently constructed auto service facility. Current projects include permitting additional space for parking and for a new use on Mystic Pier that will help fund existing operations. FPA is working with local and state permitting agencies to secure the environmental approvals that will allow for expansion of uses and businesses within this unique facility.
