Exchange South End Affordable Cultural/Commercial Space Open House

The BPDA is postponing all BPDA-hosted public meetings regarding Article 80 development projects and planning studies until further notice.

While projects will continue to be reviewed internally by BPDA staff, the public review process for both Article 80 development projects and the BPDA's planning studies is on hold until public meetings can be resumed.

As the BPDA’s response to Covid-19 continues to evolve, please check this page or follow us @bostonplans on Twitter for updated guidance.

If you are a landlord or tenant of the BPDA's housing program, please visit the BPDA's housing page for information and resources.

The Boston Zoning Code requires that the Exchange South End project include approximately 30,000 square feet of space “for use by an existing or start-up business, or for not-for-profit affordable cultural space.” This language provides significant flexibility to determine what types of uses and users could be the best fit for the space and the neighborhood.

We are seeking input from the neighborhood. Please come to one of the open houses (on May 9 and May 15) to learn more and fill out the survey OR simply fill out the survey online at:
