Hilco Redevelopment Partners Reimagines South Boston Power Plant

776 Summer Street in Boston, MA was home to a 15.2 acre power plant that formerly provided power to the City of Boston since 1898. Since it’s decommissioning, the site and its obsolete structures have been idle and walled-off from the surrounding neighborhood.

In April of 2016, Hilco Redevelopment Partners acquired the site and immediately commenced above grade remediation of the structures. Shortly thereafter, HRP submitted a proposal to the City for a 1.93 million square foot mixed-use redevelopment that will environmentally remediate the site, preserve several historic buildings and provide 5.5 acres of new outdoor public spaces, including approximately 2.5 acres of open space on the waterfront.

The proposed development will include a diverse collection of buildings that will create a dynamic mixed-use environment reconnected to the vibrant surrounding neighborhood.
