Mass. Eye and Ear wants to transform Storrow

Plan seeks to create parkland, garage

The Massachusetts Eye and Ear Infirmary will unveil a bold proposal next week that would reshape a twisting section of Storrow Drive and create three acres of new parkland on what are now parking lots.

The project is modeled after the popular park in Post Office Square in downtown Boston, where an urban greenspace was created to cover underground parking. Mass. Eye and Ear would replace the existing 327 surface parking spaces that are currently split into separate areas by Storrow Drive with more than 1,000 spaces in a four-story underground garage. The surface lots would then be consolidated into new parkland connected to the Esplanade.
