Shadley Associates is working with UMass Boston and a large consultant team to design and construct a segment of the public Boston Harborwalk along Dorchester Bay at UMass. The site is located between the new Edward M. Kennedy Institute and the JFK Presidential Library, and Harbor Point on the Bay, a residential community with extensive shoreline park, and UMass Boston. The prime consultant, a marine engineer, is designing the shoreline stabilization to combat severe erosion and to protect the campus. Shadley Associates is responsible for the design and detailing of all upland improvements such as the edge treatment, new walkway, seating areas, site furnishings such as benches and bicycle parking, lighting, signage and planting. The site is an old landfill and soils must be capped. The design complements its two immediate neighbors, and anticipates UMB’s 25-year master plan that proposes a major dormitory to be the Harborwalk’s immediate neighbor. The project is currently in the design and permitting phase.
