Sunset over the Longfellow Bridge

A little over 5 years since the original proposal to replace the Boston Harbor Garage was rejected, Donald Chiofaro has proposed a new and smaller plan for the property in hopes to win neighborhood and the city’s approval. The new proposal calls for the project to be cut in size by about 200,000 square feet from the original plan. The new plan calls for a 600 foot tower, with 120 condos and up to 300 hotel rooms plus a 500 foot office building with 700,000 square feet of space. The $1 billion proposal would also include more than 27,000 square feet of open space and a 70 foot space between the towers called the Harbor Square,”which would be a 4 season open space with a roof that could be closed seasonally. The developer envisions a skating rink in the winter and a farmers market in the summer. The new plan reflects a reduced density by 200,000 square feet and reduced height by nearly 200 feet. Mayor Walsh is in ongoing discussions with Chiofaro and predicts movement on the development this year.
