Boston – Construction is complete at 2451 Washington Street, a four-story condominium development that sits at Dudley Street and Guild Row’s prominent corner.
The new development offers 16 homes featuring a mix of bedroom sizes at both market and affordable prices in Roxbury’s Nubian Square. Amenities include a parking garage, community room, outdoor space, balconies, and energy-efficient features.
To provide a range of homeownership and asset-building opportunities in the Roxbury community, 2451 Washington Street was developed in partnership with the City of Boston and Carpenter & Company through the city’s inclusionary development policy. Other partners include the Plymouth Rock Assurance Foundation, Boston Private, and DREAM Collaborative.
The new homes complement other community investments, including Madison Park Development Corporation’s (MPDC) plan for additional for-sale homes at 75 Dudley Street, the nearby B-2 police station, the recently improved Roxbury Branch of the Boston Public Library, and Nuestra Comunidad’s Bartlett Station project.
“The project brings affordable and market-rate homeownership units to the heart of Nubian Square in a modern building design with open floor plans that feel like home. The project represents a small but impactful step to creating greater economic equity in Boston, and contributes to making Nubian Square a more livable, walkable, and thriving community,” says Greg Minott, DREAM Collaborative managing principal.
In November 2018, Madison Park Development launched its Pilot First-Time Home Buyer Program for residents living in MPDC homes. The mission of the program is to educate residents and prepare them for the homebuying process. The organization aims to provide an equitable pathway for families who want to participate in a healthy and stable community by building assets and creating generational wealth through homeownership.
