The South Boston Waterfront will welcome two new Hubway stations this spring.
The new stations, sponsored by Jamestown Properties, will be placed outside the real estate investment firm’s Innovation and Design Building on Drydock Avenue. The building, located near the Black Falcon Cruise Terminal, was purchased by the Atlanta-based firm in 2013 and is expected to be fully operational this spring.
“The addition of Hubway will provide alternative transportation options that are important to our tenants and others working in the Marine Industrial Park,” said Michael Phillips, chief operating office of Jamestown.
The company has committed $100,000 to sponsor the two stations, as well as pledged $50,000 for the construction of the concrete pads, access ramps, and striping necessary to install the new stations.
“The new bike stations are just one example of many improvements we are making at The Innovation and Design Building to support the growing base of innovation and the manufacturing companies in this eastern corner of the Seaport District,” Phillips added.
Hubway, a short-term bike rental program, has over 100 stations throughout the city of Boston, Brookline, Cambridge, and Somerville.
Stations in Boston are expected to reopen in the spring.
