About Dock Square Garage
Six-story, 264,462-square-foot parking structure standing on 1.2 acres of land overlooking the Rose Kennedy Greenway. The garage contains 698 vehicle spaces with 16,100 square feet of ground-floor retail occupied by Hard Rock Cafe, and was built in 1980 and renovated in 2007.
Fortis Property Group of New York acquired the garage for $170 million in September 2017 and proposes to construct a nine-story spiral-shaped addition above the garage containing 195 residential units, including 25 designated affordable. Fortis has not yet disclosed whether units would be apartments or condominiums. The spiral-shaped addition would increase the garage’s height to 194 feet; with the addition, the garage would be re-cladded. The garage’s total parking capacity would be reduced to 538 spaces. Renderings of the proposed addition have not yet been revealed.
The Dock Square Garage is located next to Faneuil Hall and steps from Government Center. Also nearby is the 2.9-million-square-foot Bulfinch Crossing mixed-use development, which will revamp the existing Government Center Garage and revitalize the surrounding neighborhood with a pedestrian-friendly streetscape, a public plaza and six mixed-use buildings while retaining a section of the garage at the buildings’ center.
