On Thursday evening, the Boston Planning and Development Agency approved a large scale project to redevelop the old Phillips Old Colony House and Freeport Tavern at 780 Morrissey Boulevard.
The project will include a 179,435 square foot building with 219 rental units, 29 of which will be income-restricted. There will also be a ground floor bicycle storage room and 136 vehicle parking spaces – in addition to 14,000 square feet of open space.
The project is compliant with Climate Ready Dorchester, and includes raised residential entrances to mitigate the impact of sea level rise. Launched in October 2020, Climate Ready Dorchester builds on Mayor Walsh’s Resilient Boston Harbor plan to enhance Boston’s waterfront and protect vulnerable neighborhoods from sea level rise and coastal flooding.
Lots of changes coming to the neighborhood!
