Two residential projects in Roxbury were recently approved by the Boston Redevelopment Authority’s Board.

The first project proposed construction is a four-story, LEED certified Silver, mixed-use building to house the new headquarters of the Elizabeth Stone House, a homeless advocacy non-profit.

The $14.8-million project at 3012 Washington St. will raze the dilapidated single-story structure that currently sits on the parcel and in its place build a structure for 27 units and 13,000-square-feet of ground floor space. The units will be located on the top three floors and the ground floor will be used for classrooms, staff offices, conference areas, and a childcare facility, according to the BRA.

The 27-units, which will serve as both transitional and permanent housing for homeless families and individuals, will be divided up between one-, two-, three-, and four-bedroom units. Surface parking for up to 20 vehicles is included in the project.

The project is expected to break ground in March 2015 and be completed by March 2016.

Developers were recently before the community to discuss the project. To read more, click here.

A $17.1-million project proposed by the Nuestra Comunidad Development Corporation was also recently approved by the BRA’s Board.

The project, dubbed Dudley Crossing, calls for the rehabilitation of existing buildings at 375-385 Dudley St. and 200-210 Hampden St. and the construction of two new buildings at 387 Dudley St. and 200 Hampden St.

Together the structures will add 42 affordable units to the neighborhood in addition to 3,296-square-feet of ground floor commercial space, according to the BRA.

The units will range from one- to four-bedrooms and the buildings will include elevators, laundry facilities, community space, and a bike rack.

At a meeting before the community in August 2012, plans also showed that the project included 11 parking spaces. To read more about the meeting in 2012, click here.
