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. One Congress and two high-rise residential buildings will be located 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. The remaining portions of the existing garage will contain approximately 1,100 parking spaces for both public use and on-site uses.
