Listing of City-owned Buildings and/or Land Potentially Suitable For Development

The inventory provided on this site represents land and buildings currently in the possession of the Department of Neighborhood Development that are potentially suitable for development. We provide this information as part of Mayor Thomas M. Menino’s initiative to provide the public with access to information about city-owned land and buildings.

The square footage of each parcel has been provided.  Some locations may consist of several parcels that together make up a potential developable site.  Other parcels may be suitable for development in combination with adjacent land that is either owned by the Boston Redevelopment Authority or privately owned.

The list of properties contained herein does not represent the total inventory of buildings and land owned by the Department of Neighborhood Development.  The properties provided are only those that are potentially suitable for development.  Other properties, such as wetlands, open space, or those suitable for sale as small abutter lots are not included on this list.  For information about any city property not contained on this list, or for more information about any properties found on this site, please call the Clearinghouse at 617-635-4191.
