Government Center redevelopment approved

Boston regulators on Thursday approved a sweeping redevelopment of the Government Center Garage that will demolish one of the city’s most persistent eyesores to make way for a towering complex of offices, residences, and stores.

The massive development will reunite the city’s downtown and West End neighborhoods and bring hundreds of residents, shoppers, and daily office workers to a desolate stretch of Congress Street near City Hall. The project calls for six new buildings, including a 528-foot office tower that would be a new beacon on the skyline.
