National Development files plans for mixed-use redevelopment in South Boston

March 06, 2020 - Owners Developers & Managers

South Boston, MA National Development filed plans with the city for a mixed-use project at 333 Dorchester Ave. The planned redevelopment would transform a former industrial property into a mixed-use building that includes 265 apartments, 47,000 s/f of commercial space, 14,500 s/f of retail space, and public green space. 

Situated near the Broadway Station on the MBTA Red Line, the transit-oriented project will infill underutilized industrial land with residences, workspace, and ground floor amenities. As the former industrial corridor becomes a residential and commercial extension of the neighborhood, plans include specific streetscape improvements that enhance pedestrian experience. 

For over a year, the development team has met with residents and stakeholders to gather public input and plan the project as a new piece of the neighborhood. This filing is the next step in the Article 80 process, where community and city department input helps further shape the project.

“As we move forward with the next step in the public approval process, we’re eager to continue working closely with neighbors in South Boston on our plans for this new extension of the community,” said Ed Marsteiner, a managing partner at National Development. “Demand to work and live in this neighborhood has never been higher, and we are planning for the next generation of this area to meet the needs of both current and future residents.” 

The plans for 333 Dorchester Ave. are part of a larger redevelopment initiative along the Dorchester Ave. corridor. Last year, National Development announced that Tatte Bakery will serve as the anchor tenant in the redevelopment of the former Cole Hersee building opposite 333 Dorchester Ave. on Old Colony Ave. Additional retail and restaurant tenants will be named soon.
