CNC Hosting Meeting on Revised Ropewalk Building Concept

The meeting will take place on Wednesday, Jan. 29 at 7 p.m. at the Spaulding Hospital Community Meeting Room.

The Charlestown Neighborhood Council will be hosting a meeting on Wednesday, Jan. 29 at 7 p.m. at the Spaulding Hospital Community Meeting Room, to hear a revised development concept for the historic Ropewalk Building by Joseph Timilty and his development team.  

The Ropewalk Building is considered the most historically significant building in the Navy Yard, as the only remaining building of its type in the United States, and one of only four in the world. 

The redevelopment of the Ropewalk Building will involve approval of numerous city, state and federal agencies, including the National Parks Service under the United States Department of the Interior, who are responsible for the historic preservation requirements for this type of building.

Timilty is proposing a development to include rental housing units and a small museum area. The project includes the adaptive reuse of the entire Ropewalk Building as well as the adjacent structures that are connected to the Ropewalk Building by overhead walkways. 

The proposed project does not include on-site parking.

The presentation will include information regarding the proposed development and may result in a vote of the Development Committee as a recommendation to the full Council for either support of the project or deferment of support until additional information and/or further revisions to the concept are provided.

Paid parking is available in the Spaulding garage for those attending the meeting.

NO PARKING !!!! You already have tour buses and school buses along with the double Decker buses that pass by and park there everyday. If they are planning on just letting the people who live their park on Chelsea st it is going to be insane. If they cant provide parking they should not be allowed to do the project. We have required every other project in this town to provide parking. Why is this different?
