Property Management Department

The mission of the Property Management Department is to manage, maintain, repair and provide security for the City's municipal buildings including City Hall and Faneuil Hall; to preserve the useful life of City facilities and reduce operating costs through effective preventive maintenance measures.

Gregory Rooney, Commissioner
On-going investments in municipal structures, historic buildings and other city-owned properties ensure the City’s facilities are well-maintained and managed. Asset preservation is of the utmost importance as Fiscal Year 2019 capital investments support a number of new and ongoing initiatives across the city.

FY19 Major Initiatives

  • Early action items identified from the City Hall Master Plan will begin implementation. Projects include: a pilot program that will activate more service counters on the second floor and improve signage and wayfinding, masonry repairs on the Congress Street wall, and initial site investigation and engineering on the plaza that will support planned renovations to the North Plaza.
  • An upgrade to the elevator, boiler and chiller at Faneuil Hall will be completed.
  • Repairs at Faneuil Hall that include preservation of brownstone, and repairs to historic doors and window will continue.
  • Energy efficiency projects, including an upgrade of the HVAC system will proceed at City Hall.
