That's a fantastic location right on the SE Corridor and steps from the OL at Mass Ave.

At first I was disappointed with the cookie cutter five-over-one design, but this will be 100% income restricted! Given that they won't be getting paid market rates you can't really blame them for cheaping out on the architecture.

^ I dont think it looks cheaped out for what it is. I wonder why they went 100 percent income restricted? I'll be honest, I also lament that such developments are not geographically well distributed.

The buildings adjoining the parking lot were income-restricted until recently. I assume an agreement was made to make the parking lot development also income-restricted. Looks as though the property owner deals in that sort of thing.

“Dudley Square or Nubian Square? The question moves to the voters”

“Residents will be able to vote on whether Dudley Square should become Nubian Square in the latest move to change a Boston landmark’s name because of its racial history.”

“The city council unanimously OK’d the petition for a ballot question, which is backed by Mayor Martin Walsh.”

Looks like soiling testing(?) yesterday!

I also had no idea that 12 Dade wasn't getting demolished for this. That will be a very cool courtyard space to walk back to. Very excited for that, it will feel v. cozy :D. and can't wait for some street fronting cafe tables around here.

I was on the IAG for 1785 Columbus and thought this was technically in JP, not Roxbury. 😅

It went up surprisingly fast and has been lovely to watch it rise above the tree line from my apartment.

YES, both this, 2147 Washington, and 40-50 Warren will be great additions to Dudley!

2147 Washington will have 74 units and retail+civic space+artist studios with 43 off-street parking spaces - 32 will be in the below-grade with 11 at grade next to the building. Currently 40 parking spaces on the site.

40-50 Warren will have 25 units and retail+coworking space with NO on-site parking across from Dudley Station. Currently 25 parking spaces in a municipal lot. 👏👏👏

Both will bring some opportunities for great intimate outdoor spaces!
