Electric vehicle owners will have a new place to charge and park their cars in Boston.
Boston real estate developer Dinosaur Capital Partners LLC said Wednesday it will revamp an old gas station in Boston’s Bulfinch Triangle and turn it into Green Park & Charge.
Green Park & Charge, slated to open on August 1, will be located between the Financial District, TD Garden, Fanueil Hall and the North End and directly across from the Edward Brooke Courthouse, an area where more than nine million cars and pedestrians pass a year and 35,000 cars and pedestrians pass daily, according to Scott Oran, a founding partner at Dinosaur Capital.
The park and charge facility will be eco-friendly and will use patent-pending sensor tech from Foster City, Calif.-based Streetline Inc. that will give users real-time info about open parking spaces at the facility, according to Dinosaur Capital. Streetline uses a network of low-power wireless sensors at each parking space to detect a car’s presence. The information from the sensors is then sent to Streetline’s Web and mobile applications. Users can tap into the Parker app to keep track of how much time is left for charging and to find their vehicle.
