Boston Harbor Shipyard in East Boston, MA has a long history of industrial and maritime use. Portside Shipyard Developers LLC, the manager of the shipyard, which is owned by Massport, retained FPA to obtain environmental permits for its on-going repairs and upgrades to the shipyard infrastructure in order to continue its uses as well as support other businesses within the site.
Over the past 10 years, FPA has obtained approvals from local, state, and federal agencies to repair docks, bulkheads, piers, outfalls, and a relieving platform. These approvals have allowed for substantial investments, totaling over $5.6 million, to be made at the Shipyard. FPA has also ensured the shipyard complies with state and federal stormwater requirements by updating the approvals as uses change.
