Path to Customer Service Area
The Massachusetts Port Authority consolidated nine airport rental car operations into a four-level 1.2 million square foot parking garage with a customer service center. This new facility is improving air quality, reducing noise and beautifying the airport’s Southwest Service Area. Brown, Richardson + Rowe designed the landscape to change this vehicle-oriented site into a safe and welcoming place for pedestrians and bicyclists. The new multi-use path connects the Harborwalk to Airport Station and the East Boston Greenway. The plantings reduce heat islands and increase the extent of permeable areas. The project achieved a LEED Gold certification in March 2015.
