Dot Block To Revolutionize Boston Development

This week’s Boston Business Journal cover story discusses the rise of RODE designed Dot Block, a proposed 475,000-square-foot mixed-use development including residential, retail, parking and a pedestrian-only promenade on a 4.75-acre parcel along the 1200 block of Dorchester Avenue.

For Dot Block, things are still on the drawing board for what would be one of the biggest single developments in Dorchester history.
