Project Overview

The National Parks Service (NPS), in consultation with the U.S. General Services Administration (GSA), is considering new approaches to leverage existing assets and engage the private sector to strengthen its real property portfolio. NPS/GSA are exploring potential strategies that will foster private sector involvement to promote more effective utilization of certain real property located at the Charlestown Navy Yard (CNY) in Charlestown, Massachusetts and 15 State Street, Boston, MA.

The NPS along with its partners, the U. S. Navy and the USS Constitution Museum, have collaborated on a master development strategy for the CNY. To support this strategy, NPS is seeking to improve the efficiency of park operations and address deferred maintenance challenges by activating underutilized assets using its leasing authorities.
