Description:

The BPDA is hosting an Impact Advisory Group meeting for Phase 1 of the  Mary Ellen McCormack project located in South Boston. The purpose of the meeting is to discuss the Impact Advisor Group Member's role and the PNF. The meeting will include a presentation followed by Q&A and comments from the IAG. Please note that the purpose of this meeting is different from that of a traditional community meeting. As part of the development review process, Impact Advisory Group (IAG) members work closely with BPDA staff to identify the impacts of a project and recommend appropriate community benefits to offset those impacts. IAG meetings prioritize discussion between the project proponent (i.e. the developer) and IAG members.

Project Description:

The Proposed Project for Phase 1 of the Mary Ellen McCormack Redevelopment Project (the “Project”). The Master Plan project will ultimately provide 100% replacement of the 1,016 deeply affordable homes for current residents while adding additional market rate and middle-income (if funding is available) residential units to create a true mixed-income, a mixed-use community within two planned phases of development. The first phase of development is the subject of the PNF. The PNF describes the redevelopment of the northern-most 18 acres of the approximately 31-acre Master Plan project site located on Old Colony Avenue in South Boston. The Project is comprised of 1,365 units of new mixed-income housing (572 of which will be affordable replacement units), 69,000 square feet of community and retail space, 2.3 acres of open space, and approximately 520 parking spaces.
