BRA Approves Mission Hill Project

Boston – The Boston Redevelopment Authority (BRA) and Economic Development Industrial Corporation recently approved $138 million for a transit-oriented development project in Mission Hill.

Neighborhood Housing Services is the developer, and the project architect is Goody Clancy.

The project is located across the street from the MBTA’s Roxbury Crossing Station on currently vacant land that was previously owned by the transportation agency. It is expected to be completed in three phases over five years.

Phase 1, which involves the construction of two buildings that will front Tremont Street, consists of approximately 88,000sf and includes 40 residential apartment units, 10,000sf of retail space, 35,000sf of office space, and 1,250sf of community space.

Phase 2 will continue the residential development and create approximately 48 apartments in a five-story building. Approximately 161,000sf of office space with underground parking will be constructed in the final phase. Depending on when funding and potential tenants are secured, Phase 3 could happen before Phase 2 , or they could occur simultaneously.
