Massport Marine Terminal

FPA was retained by the Massachusetts Port Authority (Massport) to prepare a Master Plan for the 40-acre Massport Marine Terminal in South Boston, MA. The site is strategically located adjacent to the Inner Harbor in South Boston and is one of three major port properties owned by Massport. As project manager, FPA directed transportation, rail, and marine cargo experts to develop a strategic plan for future development. The consulting team worked closely with Massport's Maritime, Planning and Development, and Marketing Departments throughout the planning process. While the Master Plan was underway, Massport expanded the study to evaluate the feasibility of extending freight rail to the MMT site. The Master Plan has proven to be a valuable document for guiding development proposals, as most of the parcels are now under development.
