HYM, National Unveil Redevelopment of Government Center Garage in Boston
BOSTON — National Real Estate Advisors and The HYM Investment Group have unveiled plans to redevelop the Government Center Garage into Bulfinch Crossing, a six-building, 2.9 million-square-foot mixed-use development in Boston’s Bulfinch Triangle. Spanning two city blocks, Bulfinch Crossing will be anchored by One Congress, a 1 million-square-foot office tower designed by Pelli Clarke Pelli Architects. At full build-out, the development will feature three mid-rise buildings, including a hotel-and-condo building, an office building and a multi-story retail property, surrounding a new public plaza on the eastern side of the parcel, and One Congress and two high-rise residential buildings on the west parcel. Expected to break ground later this year, the project’s first high-rise residential component, designed by CBT Architects, will consist of 486 units, including 64 designated as affordable housing. In total, the mixed-use development will include 812 residential units, 196 hotel rooms, 1.15 million square feet of office space and 85,000 square feet of new retail space. Additionally, the property will feature a 1-acre rooftop amenity on the west parcel and a more than 1-acre public plaza on the east parcel. At completion of the overall redevelopment, the remaining portions of the existing garage will contain approximately 1,100 parking spaces for both public use and on-site uses.
