Both the residential and office towers were approved by the BRA at a meeting tonight. The res tower should start construction this year. The office tower start is TBD dependent on finding a tenant.

Government Center Garage redevelopment project to include the tallest residential rental tower in Boston

January 15, 2016 10:26 AM

Say goodbye to the Government Center Garage and hello to the tallest rental tower in the city. The Boston Redevelopment Authority just gave the final approval for a plan to demolish and redevelop the site of the garage where they plan to include retail, office, hotel, and residential space. National Real Estate Advisors and The HYM Investment Group’s $1.5 billion plan includes six different buildings, two of which have been approved by the BRA. One is a planned luxury apartment building that will be the tallest rental housing building in the city when completed. The 480-foot tall, 486-unit building is set to break ground in the spring.

Also approved is a 43-story, 528-foot-tall glass office tower. National plans to break ground as soon as it secures a tenant. Once construction begins on the office tower, the existing Government Center Garage will be demolished.

These will be quite a bit higher than the announced 480' and 528'. Boston announces its heights to the highest occupied floors. The shorter residential will be between 520'-547', while the taller office should easily eclipse 600'. We estimated around 620' to the tip over at archboston.

Approved!

Huge Government Center Garage Project Is Just Getting Started



Quote:
One of the most foot-stompingly titanic real estate projects in modern Boston took a major step forward Thursday evening, with the Boston Redevelopment Authority approving the first two towers proposed for a redeveloped Government Center Garage in downtown Boston. One, a 480-foot apartment spire with 486 units and ground-floor retail, is expected to get under way this spring, per Tim Logan in the Globe. Work on the second, which is due to stretch to 528 feet, will start once developers HYM Investment and National Real Estate Advisors land an anchor tenant for what will be the biggest office tower under construction in Boston.

Four other shoots are expected to join these two spires, making for a six-building complex with a whopping 812 apartments and condos as well as 1.1 million square feet of office space, a hotel and fresh storefronts.

MEP/FP design has been contracted out to WSP|Parsons Brinkerhoff. Maybe we'll see things start to move along in the next half of the year.

I am pretty sure that they have already started doing work on the garage to get it ready to build the residential tower. At this point though the only visible work are some steel beams on the exterior and closed portions of the garage I believe. There is a lot of prep work being done right now.
