The Hull Redevelopment Authority was created in 1961 via a Special Town Meeting to accept a charter from the Federal and State Government to redevelop the parcel of land that was deemed to be substandard, decadent or blighted open areas for industrial, commercial, business, residential, recreational, education, hospital, or other purposes. The initial funding arrived at the end of 1967 in the amount of $4.7 million to take, by eminent domain the 76 buildings on the property.

During the years since the HRA was formed, there have been multiple development opportunities that have not come to fruition. These include Consultants Inc. in 1979, A.J. Lane in 1989, and Nantasket Beachfront Condos in 2004.

As of October 2018, the HRA has received two (2) developer proposals to our RFP and these will be reviewed by our Board and the Board of Selectmen over the next weeks and months. In the near future, both developers will present their proposals to the community in open meetings at the Nantasket Beach Hotel and Conference Center. We are presently engaged in our due diligence, research, and discovery, preparing the HRA Board for evaluating the proposals.
