Developers yesterday filed formal plans with the BPDA for a 266,000-square-foot research and development building between West 1 and West 2 streets, behind Artists for Humanity.
In their filing with the BPDA, CV Properties, LLC of D Street promise a public walkway from West 1 to West 2:
The pedestrian connector is envisioned as a lively space filled with art curated and installed in possible collaboration with organizations such as Artists For Humanity, whose facility is next door, and the Fort Point Arts Community.
The developers say they expect most workers in the building to take public transportation - they propose just 35 parking spaces in a garage, but 120 bicycle spaces.
If built, the new structure would mean $1.4 million in payments to a BPDA fund for affordable housing and $277,000 for a similar job fund.
