Preserving Trees

Today, we are honoring the present work of our Real Estate Team and the efforts made to preserve six silver linden trees along with Dudley Street & Guild Row & lower MPDC’s carbon footprint.
After a community hearing process in the summer and fall of 2020, the 75 Dudley design team has gone back to the drawing board and has come up with a new conceptual design in an effort to respond to the neighborhood’s wishes to preserve these trees & reduce the building’s footprint.
Street tree canopies provide essential shade and mitigate the heat island effect, which is caused by buildings, roads, and other urban infrastructure absorbing and re-emitting the sun’s heat. As part of the redesign and shown below, the building’s footprint has been reduced and pushed back from the street trees’ roots!


Solar Panel Project

In honor of #EarthMonth2021 & MPDC’s 55h Anniversary, we are proud to announce the completion of the installation of solar panels on MPDC homes!
“As of February 1st, 2021, a unique portfolio of 17 rooftop solar installations totaling 580 kW is now providing a steady stream of low-cost, renewable energy to 430 households in Roxbury, Massachusetts, providing nearly a million dollars in estimated utility cost savings to buildings serving older adults and families with low incomes. Collectively, the panels will produce 16,185,625 kWh over the next 25 years, reducing greenhouse gas emissions by 11,470 metric tons.
The solar project was made possible through a partnership between Madison Park Development Corporation (MPDC), Bright Community Capital (BCC), Resonant Energy, and New Resource Solutions.
“As the first nonprofit multifamily developer in Massachusetts to complete a portfolio-wide installation of solar photovoltaic panels on real estate assets, MPDC is very excited to partner with like-minded, mission-driven stakeholders to expand access to renewable energy for our community members in Roxbury,” said Vinnie Viola, MPDC Director of Asset Management.”
