Parcels 9 and 10
In May, two teams of developers were given the green light to build a mixed-use community on both sides of the Melnea Cass Boulevard between Washington Street and Shawmut Avenue.
Construction on Parcel 9 is slated to start in spring 2014. The $63 million complex will include a 150-room hotel, a two-story commercial and community building, and a five-story residential and retail structure. Parcel 10 will have a large supermarket anchoring a retail and residential complex that will include 66 homes. Construction is expected to begin fall 2013.
