Dot Block has received unanimous approval from the Boston Civic Design Commission. This milestone in the city review process focuses on the project’s public merits and overall design strategy. Dot Block is aimed at being the biggest single development in Dorchester history, covering four acres of land adjacent to Dorchester Avenue and minutes from the Savin Hill T Station. The pedestrian-oriented public spaces will invigorate the heart of the site by fostering an active street life, with the introduction of cafes, restaurant, and other retail spaces. We are now working towards BRA board approval, onward and upward.
