Project Progress: Project Approved

About Dock Square Garage

20 Clinton Street, Faneuil Hall, Boston, MA

Approved redevelopment of the existing 698-space Dock Square parking garage, which stands on 1.2 acres of land overlooking the Rose Kennedy Greenway. A 10-story, 253,000-square-foot spiral-shaped addition would be constructed atop the garage containing 195 for-sale condominium residences, expanding the garage to 17 stories and 209 feet tall as well as 535,000 square feet in size. Residences would include studios, one-bedrooms, two-bedrooms, three-bedrooms, and four-bedrooms, with amenities including an outdoor patio/courtyard, a pool and multiple rooftop green terraces cascading down towards the Greenway. 25 residences would be designated affordable.

As part of the project, the existing garage would be re-clad with a modern facade. Parking capacity would be reduced slightly from 698 spaces to 682, and the garage’s restaurant space, currently occupied by Hard Rock Cafe, would be reduced from approximately 15,000 square feet to approximately 8,000 in order to accommodate a new residential lobby.

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. Developer Fortis Property Group of New York acquired the garage, which was built in 1980 and renovated in 2007, for $170 million in September 2017.

The parcel is within proximity to the Greenway and the site is zoning limited to 125 feet in height maximum; I do not oppose adding the addition to bring it to 194 feet, but in this anti development, anti "high rise" ultra traditionalist City, never mind the proximity to the North End where residents are aroused into a frothing madness at the hint of any proposed structure in excess of 55 feet in height, I say to the developers, BEST OF LUCK and be prepared for crowds with torches in hand hunting down the 194 foot tall "Frankenstein Monster".

The latest design iteration evinces a beautiful building which does not overpower the general massing/architectural "sense" of the very nearby historic Dock Square buildings immediately adjacent. Still, knowing that Boston harbors a small but highly vocal and vociferous cadre of ULTRA TRADITIONALIST ZEALOTS who will more than likely scream BLOODY MURDER about the HEIGHT (OMG, 205 FT - IN BOSTON????) and modern glass curtain wall architectural presentation of the building. Count me in as one who harbors severe doubts about this project getting approved because of the aforementioned TRADITIONALIST ZEALOTS who believe Boston should be maintained as a SLEEPY, BACKWATER, Urban Museum eschewing ANYTHING MODERN and/or ANY Structure taller than a ridiculous 55 FT in height. As a LIFELONG Resident of the Boston Region and former inner resident City while growing up, I for one would like to see the anti-development, anti-modernist Boston cadre UP AND LEAVE THIS CITY and shuffle off to BOLTON, MA. YOU ARE BANNED IN BOSTON!!!!!!!!!!!!!! FTR, rebuttals from those whom I oppose (and vilify) would be very welcome. I need a good laugh!
