This document discusses the implications of Special Condition #7 of the Chapter 91 license governing the South Boston Marine Industrial Park; owned and operated by the Boston Redevelopment Authority/Economic Development Industrial Corporation. The results of our research and investigation of the park provide a solution to track and monitor the mixture of land use within the Marine Industrial Park and recommends and supports uses of available space for purposes other than maritime industrial. By means of the Land Use Matrix and inventory database, the BRA can maintain Chapter 91 compliance by ensuring that a minimum of 67 percent of the park is reserved for marine use. The document outlines the necessary background and research methods used throughout the project, regarding the exploration of industrial development and success, and the reuse of industrial buildings.
