Nonprofit Seeks Approval For Mixed-Use Project In Boston’s Mission Hill

A Boston nonprofit developer plans to transform a vacant 2-acre site in Mission Hill into a 305,750-square-foot mixed-use residential, office and retail development.

Mission Hill Neighborhood Housing Services  has notified the Boston Redevelopment Authority that it is seeking approval for 88 apartments, a 196,500-square-foot office building, 10,000 square feet of retail, 1,250 square feet of community space, and 201 parking spaces on the site, known as Parcel 25, on a former MBTA-owned parcel bounded by Tremont, Gurney, and Station streets.

In the filing with the city on Friday, the nonprofit said the proposed project for these long-vacant and blighted parcels is based on the Mission Hill community’s vision that grew out of the multi-year planning process for the area. Organized by Mission Hill Neighborhood Housing Services, the process involved residents, businesses, stakeholders, institutional neighbors and elected officials.

“This development will re-establish Roxbury Crossing as a lively, transit-oriented site where people once again live, work, shop and recreate,” the filing states.

James Hoffman. the agency’s executive director, and Patricia Flaherty. senior project manager, did not return calls seeking comment.
