Massport plans terminal upgrade
The Massachusetts Port Authority (Massport) intends to redevelop its marine terminal in Boston as an intermodal cargo warehouse and bulk cargo facility.
A new $50 million plan calls for a logistics and breakbulk facility on approximately 30 acres of the present Massport Marine Terminal, located in South Boston's Marine Industrial Development Park between the Fish Pier and the former South Boston Army Base.
'Three warehouse buildings totaling 470,400 square feet will be constructed to house companies involved in freight forwarding, logistics, supply chain management, seafood processing and cold storage,' Massport said in a statement.
'Another 6.3 acres behind the North Jetty dock will be used to import, store and distribute waterborne bulk commodities, such as cement, salt and forest products,' Massport explained.
The Massport Marine Terminal, owned by the Economic Development and Industrial Corporation of Boston, has been leased to Massport through 2070.
