Mission Hill Neighborhood Housing Services says an unused former MBTA parcel across Tremont Street from the Roxbury Crossing T stop would make a great place for 88 apartments, a 160-foot-high office building and retail space.
In a filing with the BRA this week, the group formally proposed a 306,000-square foot development for the land, known as Parcel 25, bounded by Tremont, Gurney and Station streets and the Orange Line. The proposal also calls for 201 parking spaces, most in an underground garage.
The Proposed Project for these long-vacant and blighted parcels is based on the Mission Hill communityâ€™s vision that grew out of the multi-year comprehensive participatory planning process for the site and surrounds, organized and led by Mission Hill Neighborhood Housing Services and involving hundreds of neighborhood residents, businesses, and area stakeholders, institutional neighbors and elected officials. The program will reestablish Roxbury Crossing as lively transit-oriented site where people once again live, work, shop and recreate.
The group estimates construction will take five years in three phases.
