The construction of the $115 million Dudley Square Municipal Center is part of The Dudley Vision Project, a City-funded initiative launched by Mayor Menino in 2007 with the goal of enhancing the Dudley Square retail district by focusing on real estate, economic development, and community engagement. In addition to space for street-level retail businesses, the Dudley Square Municipal Center will house academic and administrative offices of the Boston Public School Department. In June 2013 Mayor Menino celebrated a topping off at the site. The project is slated to open in fall 2014.
