The HYM Investment Group, LLC, on behalf of Bulfinch Unit A Owner LLC (referred to herein as the “Proponent”), presents the third phase of the redevelopment of the Government Center Garage, now known as the “Bulfinch Crossing Project”. The Bulfinch Crossing Project is now planned to have four phases: West Parcel Building 1 (WP-B1) as the first phase, West Parcel Building 2 (WP-B2) as the second phase, which can be found here, The East Parcel Building, which is being analyzed in this document, as the third phase, and the West Parcel Building 3 (WP-B3) as the fourth phase.
The Bulfinch Crossing Project also includes a major civic undertaking: the demolition of over 60% of the existing Government Center Garage (the “Garage”), which will daylight this area for the first time in over 60 years. This filing details a re-imagined building program and public realm for the eastern portion of the redevelopment project, consisting of a new life sciences building with ground floor active uses, a new pedestrian plaza, and public transit upgrades (the “Proposed Project”). The Proposed Project plays a critical role in the goal toward redeveloping the parcel east of Merrimac / Congress Street (referred to herein as Congress Street)1 between New Chardon Street and New Sudbury Street (the “East Parcel Project Site”), as shown on Figures 1.2 and 1.4. Upon the demolition of the portion of the Garage currently located on the East Parcel and spanning Congress Street (which demolition is currently being implemented as part of Phase 2 of the approved Bulfinch Crossing Project), the East Parcel Project Site will open the view corridor along Congress Street. Removal of the Garage creates a one-of-a-kind opportunity for redevelopment of the East Parcel Project Site into a dynamic and vibrant development, including a new public plaza with active ground floor uses and a re -designed public transit hub.
