Ribbon cut on new affordable housing and retail development in Dorchester
A ribbon cutting ceremony was held last Tuesday (August 29th) for Upper Washington, a mixed-use development located in Dorchester's Four Corners neighborhood featuring two new buildings containing 35 affordable housing units and 3,500 square feet of ground-floor retail space. Nine units at the LEED Silver sustainability-certifiable Upper Washington are reserved for formerly homeless families; all units at Upper Washington will be rented to households earning no more than 60% of area median income (AMI).
Retail space at Upper Washington is now occupied by Four Corners Main Streets, and 4 Corners Yoga + Wellness. Upper Washington has provided Four Corners with quality affordable housing and retail space that will serve the community for years to come. “I am proud that the City of Boston’s commitment to this project helped create 35 new homes — homes that will help ensure that the people who help make this neighborhood the thriving, vibrant place it is will be able to stay in their community,” said Mayor Marty Walsh at the ribbon cutting ceremony. “Boston is lucky to have this exemplary team of builders, designers, and partners who worked so closely together to create more affordable housing for working people in Dorchester.” The following is a photograph of Upper Washington, courtesy Nauset Construction:
