Parcel C Timeline

This timeline chronicles the struggle between Chinatown residents and the City of Boston over the proposed development of Parcel C in Chinatown. The New England Medical Center had negotiated with the City to build a multi-story parking garage on Parcel C which had previously been promised to Chinatown as land for a community center. The Association's advocacy, along with that of other community groups, led to the withdrawal of the Medical Center's plan. Chinatown was formally granted land for a community center, and discussions over future development began in the late 1990s.
