Per the BRA, Washington Village will be a five-acre mixed-use project in South Boston close to the MBTA Andrew Station on the Red Line. The development will consist of eight buildings housing 656 apartments and condos. Units will range from studios through three-bedrooms, which will be available to rent and own. The eight buildings will range in height from three and four stories to 21 stories. The buildings will be built in three phases. Additionally, the development will feature 98,600 square feet of retail space. Altogether the development will have 650 parking spaces intended to accommodate residents and retail customers.
Washington Village is one of the largest approved residential projects in Boston
In addition to being one of the largest recently approved residential projects in the city, Washington Village is also notable in terms of its variety of housing types and price points. Of the 656 units, 110 of them (17 percent) will be designated as deed-restricted below market rates. This proportion of income-restricted units exceeds Boston’s affordable housing requirements, while being in accordance with the PLAN: Dot Ave initiative.
New open spaces and retail space
The project will add new open spaces totaling 42,500 square feet. These spaces will consist of pedestrian plazas, landscaped areas and a roadway network. The roadway network is being designed to “complement the fabric of the surrounding neighborhood” (per the BRA).
The retail portion of Washington Village is likely to include restaurants, cafes, a grocery store and a pharmacy. Construction of Washington Village is expected to be completed in 2021.
