The owner of the South Bay shopping center in Dorchester is proposing a major expansion that would result in construction of several six-story buildings containing up to 500 apartments, hotel rooms, a cinema and stores.
No details yet, but this sounds...okay. Housing could be good. Hotels and parking garages though-- this area will continue to be car-centric.The Edens proposal would significantly expand South Bay, with several large buildings adding a residential dimension to what is now a commercial shopping complex. The project would include up to 500 housing units, 200 hotel rooms and 115,000 square feet of retail space.
Edens also wants to add a 65,000-square-foot cinema and two new parking garages, along with new roads and open space around the new buildings.
