Proposed Mission Hill project

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 Boston Redevelopment Authority today approved plans for a 145-unit building on the Riverway in which most units will be aimed at the sort of people who could not possibly afford the sorts of apartments being built in the rest of the city.

The proposed 11-story building will be next to a Brigham and Women's Hospital building now under construction on the Riverway at Fenwood Road - and the hospital is a partner in the project, for which it is donating the land, along with the Roxbury Tenants of Harvard, a non-profit group that currently maintains some 1,000 apartments in the Longwood/Mission Hill area.

Suffolk County prosecutors have temporarily dropped rape charges against a man they accused of attacking two women in Forest Hills and Mission Hill nearly ten years ago - but only so that they can re-test his DNA to rule out the chance his identical twin was actually the attacker.

Dwayne McNair was nearing his trial date for on charges he pistol whipped and raped women in Forest Hills and Mission Hill in September, 2004 when prosecutors asked a Suffolk Superior Court judge to delay the trial so that they could use a new type of DNA test that its German manufacturer says can differentiate between identical twins.
