PLAN: Dudley Square

On July 22nd, the BPDA hosted a workshop to address changes made to the Request for Proposals and the comments we received. To review content from the meeting, please visit the event site. At that meeting we also announced that the public comment period for the draft Request for Proposals (RFPs) for Nawn Factory, Parcel 8 and Blair Lot has been re-opened until August 5th. Please submit your comments in the form below.  

On July 11, the BPDA Board voted to approve the PLAN: Dudley Square Process Overview and Guidelines for Development document. It is available for review here

Past Events


At the heart of the city and home to the region’s busiest bus station, Dudley Square is a prime corridor for job creation, commerce, and transit-oriented development.

PLAN: Dudley Square will revisit the visions presented in both the Roxbury Strategic Master Plan and Dudley Vision to evaluate if they still align with current community goals. Using these past plans as a framework, PLAN: Dudley Square will offer the City and community the opportunity to think strategically about the types of uses, public realm, and scale of development that are best suited for the future of the area.

This planning effort will create a road map for a streamlined implementation plan for publicly-owned (City/BRA/State) and vacant privately-owned parcels. From this Dudley Square focus, we will work with the community to further expand the discussion to the Roxbury neighborhood at large.

Through open dialogue and community involvement, this study will be used to develop an implementation plan to mobilize development on publicly-owned parcels.

The developer responses to the DND (Department of Neighborhood Development) parcels can be viewed at the links below:

Project Review Committee

Interested in joining a Project Review Committee (PRC)?

As part of the review process project review committees (PRCs) will be formed to evaluate the developer submissions based on the criteria developed through the PLAN: Dudley Square process and outlined in the Request for Proposals (RFPs). After proposals are selected, PRCs continue to monitor project progress from tentative designation until the buildings are ready to open.

We are currently accepting nominations on a rolling basis for residents to serve on the PRCs for the BPDA parcels. If you are interested in serving on the PRC, or would like to nominate someone to the PRC, please fill out this nomination form as completely as possible. Alternatively, you can find a printed form here.

For more information, please contact Muge Undemir, Senior Planner, at or at 617.918.4488.
