Dorchester Bay City
6M SF Dorchester Bay City Advances
The 21 building, 6.1 million square foot Dorchester Bay City has taken another step forward winning approval from the Boston Planning Board. In total, the project would feature nearly 2,000 residential units, over 4M square feet of office/research space, 180,000 SF of restaurant/retail space, a new street system, and vast public realm improvements.
The development employs sustainable design and will contribute to the state and city’s 2050 carbon-free goals by converting 36 acres of asphalt park lots into urban mix-use developments near transit with various open and green spaces, a new stormwater management system. These new open spaces with approximately 1,000 new trees will prevent the urban heat island effect while contributing to the city’s Urban Forest Plan and Heat Resilience Solutions for Boston Plan initiatives.
