Residential and Office Tower Designs Presented for Government Center Garage Project

Plans were updated this week for the Government Center Garage project by developer Thomas O’Brien’s HYM Investment Group. Slicing off parts of the garage structure, two large towers will be located near Government Center. Another four moderate height buildings will “step down” to the Greenway side. The current tunnel overhang over Congress Street will be removed.

Over the total phased plan, six buildings will house 812 residential units, 1.1 million square feet of office space, 196 hotel rooms and 85,000 sq. ft. of retail. About 1,100 parking spaces will be retained in the garage.

The Government Center Garage project was approved by the BRA in late 2013. Construction of all phases is expected to last approximately 10 years starting in late 2016/early 2017.

Detailed this week were design plans for Phase 1, including a 528′ high, 43-story office tower and a 480′ high, 45-story residential tower. Scale renderings from the Phase 1 BRA filings are shown below.

  1. Has a lot of architectural appeal and adds to the Boston skyline in a positive way. Too bad that it sits next to that cinder block rat hole we call City Hall. When do they demolish that? Is that part of the bargain?

  2. Poor North End. The world is closing in. Looks like a spaceship….who wants to see that as a backdrop to the Greenway?
