DotBlock has won approval from city officials Thursday night!
Along Dorchester Avenue between Savin Hill and Fields Corner, the mixed-use complex will add more than 350 housing units and 40,000 SF of retail to a busy intersection. The biggest project in years in the neighborhood, it also sits along a stretch of Dorchester Avenue and Freeport Street that the BRA plans to rezone for more dense, transit-oriented development.
"It’s a smart place to launch a project that could help transform a neighborhood", said City Council member Frank Baker, who represents the area.
“We need to build on our density in our neighborhood,” he said. “I think this is going to be great for Dorchester, and great for the city.”
