MGH enters into ‘agreement in principle’ to purchase Bowdoin Square Gulf

December 23, 2010

Massachusetts General Hospital (MGH) has entered into “an agreement in principle” to purchase the Bowdoin Square Gulf station at 239 Cambridge St., said John Messervy, director of capital and facility planning for Partners Healthcare System.

Messervy said gas station owner Jim Sauro approached the hospital less than a year ago with an offer to sell the business, which is adjacent to MGH’s main campus. “The hospital can’t ignore opportunities to purchase property [abutting] the campus,” he said.

Messervy added that the hospital had not yet entered into a purchase-and-sale agreement with the business owner.

Bowdoin Square Gulf employees declined to comment.
