Overview

Per the BRA, One Charlestown is a proposed redevelopment of the 27.6-acre site of the current Bunker Hill Public Housing development in Charlestown.  The proposed redevelopment involves the demolition of the 42 bunker-style buildings on the site (built in 1941) and the construction of 2,100 market rate and workforce housing units, 1,100 new units of affordable housing, off-street parking and 90,000 square feet of civic and retail space.  In addition, the project will offer public amenities and create new open spaces, including two new neighborhood parks.  Per the developer’s LOI on the BRA website, the project “will provide 13 blocks of well-lit, tree-lined city streets with approximately 3,200 mixed-income housing units in a variety of apartment and duplex unit formats that will be fully integrated into the Charlestown neighborhood.”  The project will offer public area improvements to the neighborhood by creating a “new line of connection along Bunker Hill Street with active storefronts, landscaping, and a restored street grid” (per the One Charlestown website).  The project will help create a “safe, walkable and inviting neighborhood.”  Moreover, the project will preserve Charlestown’s rich history by connecting landmarks including the Bunker Hill Monument and the Charlestown Navy Yard.  All of the units, regardless of their income designation, will be built to the same design standards.  The project site offers easy access to public transportation and may also include bicycle and car sharing facilities.
