Work will begin a week after Labor Day to finishing capping the pier, install grass, walkways, fencing and lighting. The RDA board intends to have the project completed by next June and a working, waterfront open space by the summer.
“Why is this important? This is not just about the City Pier. It’s about your vision to develop the waterfront, which is a unique asset that you have here in this great city,” said Polito, who as head of the Seaport Economic Council, helped secure two $1 million grants in 2016 and 2020.
