Plans are underway for the development and construction of MPDC’s newest project, the Dudley Greenville Rental Housing Project. Dudley Greenville will consist of two buildings containing 43 affordable residential rental units and 3,000 square feet of retail space on Dudley Street, near Dudley Square in Boston.
The project will provide high-quality affordable family housing with units available to families of varying means. The location near Dudley Square will ensure convenient access to shopping, services and public transportation, employment as well as recreational and cultural amenities in the area.
This development will build on two parcels of land near the heart of Dudley Square that have remained undeveloped for several years. They are the last development sites assembled through the Orchard Park Hope VI initiative, which successfully transformed the former public housing development and surrounding area into a stable, diverse and livable community. Both sites are now vacant lots on a stretch of Dudley Street that is otherwise stable and has steadily improved over the last decade.
Dudley Greenville is located between two neighborhoods – the Orchard Gardens Estate area, and the Mount Pleasant neighborhood, and after extensive community review and outreach, the project has garnered the support of organizations in both neighborhoods, and it will be an important step in connecting the two areas.
