The developer team of Dorchester Bay EDC, Boston Capital, Escazú Development, and Newmarket Community Partners proposes building 80 units of rental housing, up to 23,400 SF of light industrial space, and 8 units in 4 two-family homes on the site at 65 East Cottage Street in Dorchester. This is an approximately $38 million project that will use federal, state, and city financing sources. Depending on the timing of financing sources, we anticipate breaking ground in 2018 or 2019. Construction is expected to last 18 months.
The development team was tentatively designated as developer of the site in May 2015 after a thorough community process. The team is currently moving through the Article 80 approval process with the BRA.
