RFP: Opportunity to revitalize key site in Boston’s historic Charlestown Navy Yard as residential, R&D, commercial, office or retail

The Boston Redevelopment Agency (“BRA”), doing business as the Boston Planning & Development Agency (“BPDA”), is soliciting responses to a Request for Proposals (“RFP”) for the redevelopment and ground lease of the former Building 108 Power Plant Site (“Leased Premises”) located at the intersection of Third Avenue and Ninth Street on a portion of Parcel NY-1 in the Historic Monument Area of the Charlestown Navy Yard within the Charlestown Urban Renewal Area, Project No. Mass. R-55.

This RFP seeks to secure redevelopment of the Leased Premises for residential, research and development, commercial, office, or local retail uses.

The Leased Premises consists of approximately 40,668 square feet of land area and is currently occupied by Building 108. Building 108 is expected to be demolished in the spring and summer of 2020 due to its deteriorating condition and the environmental contaminants present in the building.

After demolition, the Leased Premises may carry an Activity and Use Limitation restricting certain uses as a result of contaminants that are not able to be fully remediated. Redevelopment plans should be coordinated with the National Park Service’s adjacent property at Building 107.
