Crescent, Malcolm X & Putnam, and P3 – Campus High Urban Renewal and Urban Design Guidelines
The January PLAN: Nubian Square workshop will build upon previous PLAN: Nubian workshops and will focus on the Campus High Urban Renewal Plan, which Crescent, Malcolm X & Putnam, and P3 are all a part of. We will discuss the history of the urban renewal plan, how it impacted the area, and how it is discussed in relation to PLAN: Nubian Square. We will also be discussing the urban design guidelines for Crescent Parcel and Malcolm X & Putnam Parcels as they relate to one another and the neighborhood.
As with all previous workshops, feedback provided will be taken into consideration for incorporation into the RFP documents. Throughout the evening there will be opportunities for attendees to engage in dialogue with City and BPDA team members, regarding urban renewal and urban design guidelines.
PLAN: Nubian Square is an initiative to think strategically about the types of uses and the scale of development best suited for the future of Nubian Square and Roxbury. PLAN: Nubian Square builds on the visions presented in both the Roxbury Strategic Master Plan and Dudley Vision.
On December 19, 2019, the Public Improvement Commission approved the name change of Roxbury’s Dudley Square to Nubian Square after a public hearing. Moving forward, the BPDA will refer to PLAN: Dudley Square as PLAN: Nubian Square, formerly known as PLAN: Dudley Square.
