Andrew Square project: Washington Village

Dorchester, Southie, South Boston, Real estateEarlier this week the Boston Redevelopment Authority approved the Washington Village project, which will reshape a five-acre swath of South Boston turning the mostly unused space into more than 650 new residential units, a plaza and 99,000 square feet of restaurant and retail space. The new development will be near Andrew Square between Old Colony and Dorchester avenues.

The development is not only one of the largest residential projects approved but it also stands out for combining both homeownership units and rentals with 17% of the residential units reserved for affordable, lower- and middle income residents; targeting what The Boston Globe article from earlier this week referred to as ‘middle-class clientele’, that has largely been left out of the current building boom.
