The Massachusetts Asset Management System (MAssets) records, maps and reports on the acquisitions and dispositions of all Commonwealth Real Property. The state owns approximately 13,794 parcels of land in nearly all of the 351 cities and towns across the Commonwealth. This totals over 687,000 acres and over 80 million gross square feet of buildings and other improvements.
The database also tracks over 80 million gross square feet of structures that the Commonwealth owns, including office buildings, university campuses, hospitals, highway depots, skating rinks, pools, residences, and others. These assets are managed by many different state agencies who exercise care and control over the property. The Commonwealth also leases over 6,695,988 usable square feet of space from the private sector.
This 2011 MAssets Report includes real property data from July 2009 through March 2011 and is now indexed and searchable. The next edition will be issued in early 2013.
Maps which show a single point location for each site (vacant) or facility (with buildings) owned by the Commonwealth are presently being updated and will soon be added to this site.
