Bulfinch Crossing the Next Phase of Urban Revitalization in Boston

By Thomas N. O’Brien

A 4.8-acre mixed-use, transit-oriented development on the site of the Government Center Garage aims to meet the future needs of Bostonians.

SPANNING TWO city blocks at the geographic center of Boston’s urban evolution, Bulfinch Crossing — the redevelopment of the Government Center Garage site — has been planned as a 2.9 million-square-foot mixed-use development. Situated atop two MBTA subway lines, a short walk from the city’s two commuter rail stations and a mere five-minute drive from Logan Airport, the project is expected to set a new standard for transit-oriented development.

At buildout, the 4.8-acre project will feature 1.15 million square feet of office space, much of it in One Congress, a 43-story, 1 million-square-foot office tower designed by Pelli Clarke Pelli Architects and CBT Architects that will rise more than 500 feet at its namesake location, offering unparalleled 360 degree views. Tenants are expected to include financial services, technology and/or other Boston-based industries.
