Saturday meeting planned on Port Norfolk development

Developers are soliciting community feedback on a large project porposed for the MarineMax/Russo Marine site in Port Norfolk. Neighbors have been invited to a “workshop” on Saturday from 10-11 a.m. at the Boston Winery, 26 Ericsson St.

The project calls for 150 residential units, a 25-room hotel, retail, and parking.South Boston-based City Point Capital plans to raze the site, including about 71,300 square feet of boat storage, sales and service facilities, for a seven-building, 330,000-square-foot Neponset Wharf project on the Neponset River, according to a letter of intent submitted to the Boston Planning & Development Agency.

The letter states existing marina uses and boat slips would be maintained and renovated, and augmented with new over-water structures and on-land boat storage. The project would include about 195 parking spaces for residents of the development and support public access to new open space and waterfront programs, including a boathouse, according to City Point’s letter.
