Hang onto your hats!

After years of back and forth in planning (since 2017), the Boston Planning and Development Agency has finally approved a large-scale project in Dorchester’s Port Norfolk neighborhood at 24 Ericsson Street. 

According to the Boston Business Journal, this five-building mix-use project was approved last Thursday. The real estate development teams of Rise Together and City Point Capital plan to redevelop three existing buildings and build two more to create 120 residential units – all built to Passive House energy efficiency standards. Also part of the plan is a combined 36,400 square feet of office space, 3,600 square feet of retail and a 22,300-square-foot boathouse.

New waterfront outdoor spaces and facilities will be created for residential and public use, including the upgraded marina and boathouse, a continuation of the Boston Harborwalk, and enhanced public access to the Boston Waterfront. New water transportation links could be created as well.

So lots of changes coming to the neighborhood.
