The BPDA is hosting a virtual Impact Advisory Group (IAG) meeting for the Drexel Village project, located in the Roxbury neighborhood of Boston. The purpose of the meeting is to provide an overview of the proposed changes and discuss potential impacts and mitigation. The meeting will include a presentation followed by questions and comments from the public.
The approximately 300,000 gross square foot mixed-use project will establish a prominent gateway at the Melnea Cass and Tremont Street corridor and will offer a three-building complex that includes the renovation of the St. Katherine Drexel Church and Parish ministry space, along with mixed-income rental and homeownership housing, retail, commercial, and social-service space, including over 60,000 square feet of public open space that will provide passive recreation and pedestrian connectivity to the neighborhood's open space networks along the Tremont Street corridor. The Drexel Village project site's gateway prominence as a key location in the Roxbury Cultural District will showcase a dynamic variety of permanent and temporary Public Art that will celebrate the cultural diversity, history, and heritage of Nubian Square.
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.
