This Request for Proposals (“RFP”) offers qualified developers an opportunity to submit proposals for the redevelopment and ground lease of Parcel U (the “Premises”), located at 7 Channel Street in the Raymond L. Flynn Marine Park (“RLFMP”) in South Boston, Massachusetts for the purpose of: enhancing its potential uses and value in a manner consistent with the zoning and other regulatory standards that define the uses of the Premises and capturing the opportunities presented by the 2022 RLFMP Master Plan Update. The Premises consists of land area of approximately 45,310 square feet, with a masonry and metal building thereon of approximately 27,049 square feet. Potential redevelopment of the Premises could include commercial, general office, high-tech manufacturing, life sciences, research and development, marine industrial, aquaculture and general manufacturing, or more traditional distribution and cold storage. Residential and hotel uses would not be considered. The location of the Premises could include a single engine company Boston Fire Department Station (“BFDS”) within a proposed development. Therefore, this RFP requires proponents to include two development scenarios in their submitted proposals – Program A and Program B. Program A should consist of uses that conform to the goals articulated above. Program B shall conform to those goals, but also include the delivery to the BPDA of a core and shell space that the BPDA could dedicate to community and/or government use, a community benefit that shall come at no cost to the BPDA. To the extent permissible under applicable law, the BPDA anticipates that this space may serve as a BFDS as needed to better serve the South Boston Seaport and the City of Boston overall.
