5. Case No. 11-05MA – 50 Cedar Street
Construction of a new five story office building with internal parking on a site currently used as a parking lot. – for action (AP 26 Lot 182, Federal Hill)


The Google Machine seems to think that 50 Cedar Street, the proposed 5-story office building with internal parking on Federal Hill, is the parking deck at the corner of Bradford and Cedar. The Google Machine is not always right about these things, so we’ll try to confirm that.

Update: The Assessor Database has no listing for “50 Cedar Street.” 48 Cedar Street is the parking deck at Cedar and Bradford. Lot 182 extends along Cedar Street almost to Bond Street.
