In February of 2016, as part of the “Open for Business” Real Estate Asset Leveraging Strategy, Governor Charlie Baker and Mayor Martin J. Walsh announced a joint State and City program with Veolia North America to explore the strategic redevelopment of the Massachusetts Department of Transportation’s land assets in the South Bay area of downtown Boston, which includes the MassDOT District 6 Headquarters and the Veolia facility on Kneeland Street.

The BRA is working with MassDOT to develop a broad set of goals for the sites, with the engagement of community leaders and residents, which could include economic development, job creation, open space and affordable, workforce and transit-oriented housing.

This website will serve as a repository of documents for the process. Please check back often for updates.
