Today DCR released a Request for Expressions of Interest (RFEI) in the Powder Magazine at the park. This is the first of a two-step process to identify a long-term lessee for this structure who will convert the interior to its next use.
“The Powder Magazine Building is an important part of the history of the Commonwealth, the City of Cambridge, and the Charles River Basin, said DCR Commissioner Carol Sanchez. “By partnering with an outside party, DCR will ensure that the building is preserved and reconnected to the community, for years to come.”
Expressions of Interest are due December 9th. DCR will hold an Open House of the Magazine on Saturday, November 7, 12pm-2pm. If you are interested in attending, please contact: mailto:HCP@Requests@state.ma.us.
