Beacon Hill Times — Report on Beacon Hill Civic Association board of directors vote to support legislation proposed by Representative Livingstone regarding Massachusetts Ear and Ear Infirmary (MEEI) and the Esplanade expansion. “The legislation would authorize the hospital to enter into a long-term agreement with the state to lease two surface parking lots located within the Charles River Esplanade. MEEI intends to build a 1,065-space garage beneath the parcels, and to convert the existing parking lots to landscaped public parkland at the street level. The creation of additional new greenspace is also proposed between Storrow Drive and the Charles River, as the state has determined that the relocation of Storrow Drive under one arch of the Longfellow Bridge could be a feasible and convenient component of the ongoing reconfiguration of the Longfellow Bridge.” Read the story.
