Owners of the Government Center Garage want to replace the concrete eyesore with a skyscraper that would rival the Boston‘s Prudential tower in height.
The 3.3 million-square-foot, mixed-use development proposal includes a pair of glass office towers on a parcel closer to Government Center. The tallest tower would be 52 stories, the same height as the Prudential Building at 800 Boylston. The other would reach 42 floors.
On the parcel closer to the Rose Fitzgerald Kennedy Greenway, four buildings are proposed for housing and retail, ranging from 8-14 stories. The buildings would be wrapped around a garage masked by the project.
In addition, District A-1 Police Headquarters and another city-owned building on nearby New Sudbury Street would be razed to make way for the $2 billion transit-oriented development adjacent to Haymarket MBTA station.
