The National Parks Services are looking to lease two buildings in the Charlestown Navy Yard, according to the Charlestown Patriot-Bridge

The Boston National Historic Park is planning to accept proposals for a lease on Building 125, located on Baxter Street, and the old Hoosac Stores Warehouse on Constitution Road by the end of February as it looks to repurpose the two buildings, according to the report. 

The Hoosac building previously belonged to a complex of warehouses, docks and wharves built in the late 19th century by the Fitchburg Railroad. To learn more about the building's history, click here.

The NPS plans to issue request for proposals (RFPs) for both properties by month's end, according to the report.

The Hoosac Building is an eye sore. It should be demolished, the bricks pulverized and the brick dust used to fill pot holes. There are many "historic" buildings in Boston that add beauty to the neighborhoods and help connect us to our past. The Hoosac building is NOT one of them. Instead it sits like a golem upon the waterfront reminding us all of the lack of vision that the early builders had for the use and beauty of our inner harbor. The only RFP I want to see is one that removes this monstrosity once and for all.

I'm a new resident to the navy yard. I'd love to see some great stores and restaurants instead of the what is an "eye-sore" now. Hundreds of thousands of people pass by that building, converting it to a useful entity would generate revenue in taxes and enjoyment to all the locals and tourists alike! I welcome creative ideas from developers and more progressive thinking people in our community!
