Description:

The BPDA is hosting an Impact Advisory Group (IAG) Meeting for the 554-562 Columbia Road project located in Dorchester. The purpose of the meeting is to discuss and finalize the project with the IAG. The meeting will include a presentation followed by Q&A and comments from the IAG, then the general public.

Please note that the purpose of this meeting is different from that of a traditional community meeting. As part of the development review process, 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.

Proposal for a mixed-use residential/commercial development with 72 new residential units including the four-story Fox Hall Building to be renovated along with 5,524 sf of commercial space in combination with construction of a six-story addition at the rear along with a 24 space parking garage and associated open space and amenities. The Proponent envisions development without displacement with 100% of the new residential units deed-restricted for a variety of income levels in a true mixed-income program, with existing SRO tenants at the Fox Hall Building upgraded to larger studio apartments in the new building without displacement.
