Nitsch Engineering is providing land surveying, permitting and civil engineering services for the long-awaited development of the 20.5 acres that make up Fan Pier, which is anticipated to be a defining part of the South Boston waterfront revitalization. The transit-oriented development will eventually consist of nine buildings that contain luxury condominiums, 1.5-million square feet of Class A office space, a five-star hotel, the HarborWalk path along the water, the Fan Pier Park, and a protected marina.
The first phase of the project, which was completed in 2010, included the design and construction of a two-acre public park, a temporary retail building, and ONE Marina Park Drive (formerly called Building E), a LEED Gold, 500,000-square-foot, 18-story office building with ground floor retail and underground parking. Buildings A & B are currently under construction.
