The Economic Development and Industrial Corporation (“EDIC”), doing business as the Boston Planning & Development Agency (“BPDA”), is soliciting responses to a Request for Proposals (“RFP”) for the air rights lease to install and operate a solar photovoltaic canopy atop the Parking Garage (“Leased Premises”) located at 12 Drydock Avenue in the Raymond L. Flynn Marine Park (“RLFMP”). The Leased Premises are located above the Parking Garage, positioned on an approximately 3.38 acre site, with a footprint of approximately 109,095 square feet and a gross building area of approximately 545,950 square feet.
This RFP seeks to secure a new source of renewable energy within the RLFMP, in keeping with the City of Boston and Mayor Walsh’s objectives to address climate change and make Boston carbon neutral by 2050. The Leased Premises is intended for utilization through a 20-year air rights lease by the BPDA pursuant to the RFP. The BPDA expects an air rights lease price proposal to include a commitment to supply the electricity needs of the Parking Garage in full at no cost to the BPDA and an annual fixed rent payment.
