Parcel D Overview
Parcel D, 50 Liberty Drive, is a proposed residential condominium building designed within previous development approvals, including PDA
zoning limits, the BRA approved massing envelope, master plan design guidelines, and in accordance with Chapter 91 requirements.
The proposed project consists of approximately 252,000 SF above grade building area, including 80% public accommodation areas at the ground
floor and with 3 levels of below grade parking containing approximately 225 spaces. Building uses include approximately 15,000sf of retail at the
ground floor, including 5,000 SF of Cultural space on the first floor and 8,166 on the second floor to be shared by the Aquarium, the Childrens
Museum and the Harbor Island Alliance. The balance of the second floor will include residential amenities, additional retail and a possible
expansion of the Cultural space. Residential condominiums are located on floors 3 thru 14 and a mechanical penthouse occurs at the top of the
building. The proposed building height of 195 at the top of the Penthouse complies with all permit requirements.
A one story street wall base expression, containing retail storefronts, signage canopies and entries is proposed at all four street faces. A two story
cut out is proposed for the buildings residential entry and vehicular drop off at the corner of Fan Pier Boulevard and Liberty Drive. An L shaped
tower element above the base and up to a height of approximately 175-0 expresses the condominium unit organization. The tower massing
will be scaled by variations in the condominium unit mix, with unit layouts grouped on levels 3 thru 9, 10 thru12, and with penthouse units at
levels 13 and 14. The tower massing will be organized in an L configuration allowing light and views predominantly North to the harbor and
with city, airport and island views beyond. The tower will be clad in unitized curtain wall, with clear vision glass and inset stone panels, and
spandrel glass panels. The volume of the tower is articulated by facets and angular shifts in the building envelope that will express interior unit
layouts and reflect light in a subtly shifting manner. The visual richness and variety of the massing will be further accented by groupings of
cantilevered balconies organized around the building geometry.
Public Spaces to be constructed with the building include new sidewalks and streets at Waterside Avenue, Marina Park Drive and Liberty Drive,
as well as sidewalk improvements on Fan Pier Boulevard. In addition, it will include the completion of Fan Pier Park as well as a Public Pavilion
housing a caf, showers and restrooms.
Projected start of construction is early August 2015.
