Boston Museum presented its project proposal to MassDOT and the Parcel 9 RFP Committee members last night. The non-profit organization is proposing to develop a cultural/civic institution of Boston history at Parcel 9 along the Greenway. The presentation took place on April 25, 2012 at the Nazzaro Community Center in the North End. The video contains both the presentation and the Q&A period with the RFP committee and public in attendance.
Four bids were submitted in response to the RFP issued by the State’s transportation authority, MassDOT, that owns the parcel. The triangular lot, known as Parcel 9, is adjacent to Haymarket, Blackstone St. and the Rose F. Kennedy Greenway.
The four Parcel 9 bidders are the Boston Museum, Blackstone Market (DeNormandie Companies & Cresset Development), a hotel concept by Normandy Real Estate / Jones Lang LaSalle and Market Square by Upton + Partners. (See Four Developers Bid on Parcel 9 Project, Adjacent to Greenway and Haymarket.)
Blackstone Market, a proposal by DeNormandie Companies / Cresset Development, also presented last night. On May 1, 2012 at 6:00 pm, Normandy and Upton will present their proposals at the Mariner’s House, 11 North Square.
