Draft Requests for Proposals (RFPs)
In the Dudley Square area there are many vacant and underutilized properties whose potential future uses have been discussed with the community. PLAN: Dudley Square began in early 2016 as a community engagement process to revisit the goals of the Roxbury Strategic Master Plan. To realize the vision for an economically empowered Dudley Square, the Boston Planning & Development Agency, City of Boston, and State of Massachusetts agreed to leverage their real estate assets in the area for explicitly community oriented development projects.
The conclusion of the PLAN: Dudley Square will result in the release of a series of Requests for Proposals (RFPs) that outline the development objectives and guidelines. The PLAN: Dudley Square Process Overview document is currently being finalized.
On July 16, 2018, after two and half years of public process, the Department of Neighborhood Development (DND) released RFPs for the four parcels of land they own: 40-50 Warren Street; 75-81 Dudley Street; 2147 Washington Street; and 135 Dudley Street (also known as Dudley Street Commercial). Official versions of the final RFPs can be downloaded here. On June 3rd, 2019, the Project Review Committee for the DND parcels made a recommendations to the RSMPOC for each parcel, which they approved. For more information on submitted proposals and selected developer, please visit DND's site.
There are currently three draft RFPs being reviewed by the community, the BPDA, and DND. There are for the Nawn Factory, Parcel 8, and Blair Lot. The comment period for the draft RFPs is open until August 5th 2019. Please submit your comments below.
