On July 28, 2009 the Boston Redevelopment Authority sent out a request for proposals to re-design Gateway Park (or “China Gate Park”). The RFP states:
The Boston Redevelopment Authority (“BRA”) is soliciting proposals from qualified individuals or companies (“Proponent”) to provide professional Design Services in connection with China Gate Park on Hudson Street in Boston’s Chinatown neighborhood. This proposal will develop park and play space improvements that address issues of site and landscape design including pavements and drainage, play elements, and signage for the proposal area.
The kids and I will be following how this plays out, and we’ll be learning about how designs for public space are chosen in a city. Good stuff.
