Developer Joseph Timilty and the Charlestown Neighborhood Council has cancelled the scheduled public meeting of Wednesday Jan. 29 on a revised development concept for the historic Ropewalk Building.
The meeting is being rescheduled for a latter date.
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.
Timilty has been 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.
