256 Dorchester Street
32-unit apartment building proposed in South Boston
George Khoury, owner of Bell’s Market at 256 Dorchester Street in South Boston, proposes to demolish the single-story retail building currently home to the market and construct a new five-story mixed-use building featuring 32 apartment residences and 7,835 square feet of ground-floor retail, including a new market. The proposed building would be located near the intersection of Dorchester Street and Old Colony Avenue, a short walk from both Andrew and Perkins Squares. Construction of the proposed building would begin in Summer 2018, with completion expected in Fall 2019. Khoury has submitted a Small Project Review Application (SPRA) formally proposing the project to the Boston Planning & Development Agency (BPDA), who is now reviewing the proposed project.
