Tuesday morning in Falmouth, the Steamship Authority will reveal three revised design concepts for the Woods Hole terminal building. Following the 10 a.m. meeting and presentation, drawings of the designs will be posted on the project website at steamshipauthority.com/WHterminalreconstruction.

The SSA is also planning two public sessions to review the designs: March 28 at 6 p.m. in the Falmouth High School auditorium and April 8 at 5 p.m. in the Katharine Cornell Theatre in Vineyard Haven.

An earlier concept for the building drew criticism on both sides of the Sound by residents who said it was too tall and, with its glass and stone exteriors, looked more like a ski resort lodge than a Cape Cod ticket office.

Even those who said the building itself was attractive still questioned the need for a two-story structure that included employee break rooms, locker and meeting rooms along with the ticket office and waiting room for customers.

“It received mixed reviews, I think it’s fair to say,” said Stephen M. Sayers, who retired as SSA general counsel in 2018 but remains on staff.

After an avalanche of public comments late last year, the Steamship Authority sent its architects, Bia.studio (formerly Bertaux & Iwerks), back to the drawing board to develop alternatives.

Architect Chris Iwerks told the Gazette last winter that the sheer number of objectives the project is expected to achieve makes it effectively impossible to satisfy all of the people affected: travelers, neighbors, Islanders, shippers and their customers and Steamship Authority workers.

The building height, for instance, has been a rallying point for Woods Hole and Island residents who say it will block the much-loved view of Woods Hole Passage from automobiles entering the village.

But according to Steamship Authority officials, even a single-story building would block the view, because anything constructed on the site is required by law to be based several feet higher above flood level than the old terminal building that was razed in 2017.

To confirm this assertion, the boat line sent employees aloft in what Mr. Sayers called a “bucket truck experiment” in December.

“We calculated where the new building would be, and Greg Endicott and Kevin Lyons got up on the bucket truck at various heights,” Mr. Sayers said.

The experiment “did confirm that even a one-story building with any kind of a pitched roof would block the water views from Woods Hole road,” he said.

Vineyarders who want to attend the meeting are not required to pay the boat fare when traveling to SSA meetings. The parking lot shuttle bus stops at the boat line administration building on Palmer avenue, where most meetings are held on the first floor.
