Massachusetts General Hospital has proposed a development that includes two connected 12-story towers on Cambridge Street in the West End.
The $1 billion-plus development is likely the largest construction project that any hospital has ever proposed in Massachusetts, and means the end of yet another Boston garage—this the Parkman Street one, which would be demolished to make way for one of the Cambridge Street buildings. That building would in turn have parking underneath.
The plans would also mark another major hospital project in Boston. Boston Children’s Hospital is in the midst of a $1 billion expansion and Beth Israel Deaconess Medical Center is planning a new tower.
The Mass. General development would be on land the hospital already owns, and would help the institution deal with a growing number of patients, per the Globe’s Priyanka Dayal McCluskey.
Mass. General’s plans—which have a target completion date of 2026—are still preliminary and need various approvals. Stay tuned.
