Gate Residential Properties, LLC and Bulgroup Colorado LLC. have filed a Letter of Intent with the Boston Planning and Development Agency (BPDA) to develop 175 McClellan Highway into a mixed use development.
The 143,139 sq. ft. parcel currently houses Sterlingwear of Boston, a U.S. Navy peacoat manufacturing plant, Planet Fitness, the Veronica Robles Cultural Center, the East Boston Chamber of Commerce, the Christ the King Presbyterian Church and Swissport Fuel. The site is currently leased to Avis Car Rental who operates a surface parking operation on site.
