For over 40 years, MPDC has been at the forefront of the physical redevelopment of Roxbury. We have a strong track record of producing affordable and high quality housing for low and moderate income families. Our commitment and impact can be seen in the development of 113 homeownership units, 1,117 rental apartments, and 125 units of student housing. As a result, more than 3,000 people choose to live in our housing in the Roxbury, South End and Mattapan neighborhoods of Boston.
In addition to the housing we’ve developed, we have also redeveloped over 76,000 square feet of retail and office space in Dudley Square. Our commercial space houses several businesses and not-for-profit organizations that employ over 250 people. And projects such as the Schoolhouse development and Hibernian Hall, represent the preservation of important historic sites that contribute to the character and vitality of Roxbury.
MPDC values partnership and recognizes the benefit of working collaboratively with other organizations. Over the last several years, we have partnered with Trinity Financial, Haley House and Peabody Properties on development projects.
We also work with Winn Residential,Trinity Management, Maloney Properties, and Peabody Properties to insure the successful management of all of our residential and commercial properties.
