247 Hancock Street
Location: 247 Hancock Street, Dorchester, MA 02125
Size: 48,000 SF
With a flowing, sculptural massing and thoughtful, efficient building layout, 247 Hancock Street brings 47 units of mixed-income housing to the Dorchester neighborhood. The sculpted form reflects the dramatic topography of the ledge the building backs onto, letting the building fit naturally into its context. A pull back at two floors references differing scales of surrounding streetscape, and a setback sixth story creates a resident terrace and maximizes the affordable residential program.
Located next to RODE and Arx Urban’s recently completed multifamily development The Meeting House, 247 Hancock is a key component of the developer’s full-spectrum affordable neighborhood plan.
