The Development of Parcel 9 represents a once in a century opportunity to reinforce the permanence of the marketplace as a thriving enterprise and an iconic gathering place within the city. Parcel 9, in conjunction with the proposed Boston Public Market at Parcel 7, and the existing Haymarket Pushcarts have a unique and central location between several important downtown neighborhoods including the West End, Beacon Hill, North End Waterfront and is also proximate to the downtown financial district, Government Center, and Faneuil Hall, not to mention the intersection of the Kennedy Greenway and the Freedom Trail.Our proposal consists of two distinct building forms. The first, and primary form, is our 1-2 story Market Hall which includes an open air market space located at the northern ‘point’ of parcel 9, shop space for independent retailers, public restroom facilities, a public winter garden and hotel reception area, and dedicated space for the HPA. The Market Hall form has a length of 172 ft along the expressway side of Parcel 9. Portions of the Market Hall have an occupiable second floor which consists of a community meeting room as well as a swimming pool, spa and exercise room all made available for use to the North End/Waterfront community and shared with the Hotel.
