The Navy Yard was given to the City of Boston by the U.S. Navy in 1977 for development. Between then and now, there have been 453 condominium units built and over 500 rental apartments with a residential population of 2,100 people. North of 1st Avenue was developed primarily as commercial space; as presently constituted, there is over 900,000 square feet of space occupied by Mass General Hospital, the MWRA, the Boston Redevelopment Authority and a myriad of smaller businesses employing over 5,000 persons. There are four restaurants, a yacht marina with 350 slips, parks and tons of open space for all to enjoy. All this situated on Boston Harbor with the City of Boston looming up as a backdrop!
