After a long delay, the plans for the new boathouse of the Boston Athletic Association are now complete and the contracts awarded. The building, two stories in height, will be located on the Cambridge side of the Charles River Basin near the Cottage Farm Bridge and will embody the most improved ideas in outfit and equipment.
On the lower floor will be the boat room, which will cover the entire area of the building. Upstairs there will be locker rooms, showers, and a large lounging room, the latter opening upon a broad covered piazza from which an unobstructed view of the river may be obtained. The boating enthusiasis of the association expect the boathouse to be ready for occupancy at the beginning of August.
