Boston is building. And the Boston Redevelopment Authority has a full plate.
We recently took a look at housing units currently under construction in the city and found that the BRA is overseeing .
In total, the authority is dealing with 264 projects ranging from the “letter of intent” stage to the “construction recently completed” stage.
Today, we thought we would look at non-residential property. Right now, the authority reports, contractors are swinging hammers and stripping wires on a total of 30 projects with a non-residential component citywide—including Arboretum Place, the twin commercial developments in Forest Hills.
The businesses slated for the mixed-used development, which straddles Washington Street as you go into Roslindale, include a new location. The new grocery store is on track to open in early January, according to Mike St. Clair, general manager of Harvest Co-op Markets.
Also underway in JP is, of course, the huge redevelopment of Jackson Square at 225 Centre St. The project aims finally to reunite JP and Roxbury, which had been sundered by demoltion to make way for the never-built I-95.
