About 135 Morrissey Boulevard
Proposed repositioning of the former Boston Globe headquarters at 135 Morrissey Boulevard in Dorchester. The existing three-story office and industrial building would be retained and retrofitted for creative office, laboratory and retail use, creating a hub for high-tech jobs in fields such as robotics, life sciences and high-tech manufacturing. No space or residential units would be added to the building; smaller outbuildings would be removed from the 815,000-square-foot existing building, creating 690,000 square feet of space. In total, the project would add over 3,000 jobs to the Dorchester economy.
A portion of the property would be dedicated to a micro craft brewery with a food component, including an outdoor beer garden. Space would also be dedicated for robotics-related work. A new multi-use path would be created around the site, restoring the adjacent Patten’s Cove public park.
135 Morrissey Boulevard is located minutes from Interstate 93 and just a five minute walk from JFK/UMass Station on the MBTA Red Line and Commuter Rail. The 16.5-acre site was formerly called home by The Boston Globe, who has since moved to Downtown Boston. 135 Morrissey Boulevard features abundant surface parking, including 874 spaces for cars and 107 spaces for trucks.
