The city of Boston has quietly asked for bid proposals for a pair of surplus North End buildings, including the gateway old police station at 150 North Street.

The Herald reports a number of developers are eying the properties for either condos/apartments or possibly a new location for a neighborhood trade school. Both are good ideas. But we have suggestion: How about a new museum? Wasn’t there a proposal out there for some sort of Boston history museum, tied to the city’s innovative industrial history, near the Haymarket station? Maybe the old BPD building is too small. But it sure looks like an old museum. It’s just an idea.

The other property put out to bid is a nearby warehouse that used to be the city’s printing facility.

File under: Buon Anno!
