UMass looks to radically redevelop Bayside Expo Center in Dorchester

All the gay boys who have moved out to Dorchester near Columbia Point will be happy to learn that earlier this week the University of Massachusetts Building Authority said they intend to develop the 20-acre Bayside Expo Center site into a mixed use “an oceanfront Boston neighborhood,” and is soliciting developers on how best to conceptualize that vision.

Can you say “cha-ching” to all those guys who have already moved out to this part of Dorchester? Although nothing has happened yet, this is by far the best news this neighborhood has had in a long time (far better for property value than being turned into a sporting venue like Kraft had floated previously).

Interested developers have been given until early October to submit proposals so stay tuned as there is likely to be a lot more about this in the news later this fall.

  1. Hopefully the developers will include a mix of housing including low income senior/disabled options, actual affordable units (rental) for families and singles. Improved access to public transportation, etc.

    This is all very much needed.
