News dropped on Friday that the city had signed off on the gargantuan redevelopment of the Government Center Garage to create a six-building complex of 812 condos and apartments, 1.1 million square feet of office space, 196 hotel rooms, and oodles of retail.

Above is what the garage looks like on Merrimac Street now and what it will look like post-project.
