DREAM Collaborative is currently collaborating with Developer HYM and non-profit My City at Peace on a design proposal for The Boston Planning & Development Agency’s (BPDA) RFP for a property known as Parcel P3 in Roxbury.
P3 is a 7.7 acre, publicly-owned vacant piece of land assembled during the Campus High Urban Renewal Plan. Due to its large size, proximity to public transit, major roads and educational facilities, this site has the potential to contribute to the economic development in the Roxbury area while advancing the community’s commitments to affordable housing, arts and culture, and equity. Our design of the project will create a new inclusive mixed-use development to include affordable and market rate housing, a life science campus, museum space for Embrace Boston, retail and a variety of public open green space.
Our team approached the project through three lenses, envisioning that the future of P3 will: Honor the Heritage, Restitch and Regenerate, and Catalyze Local Wealth. Through programming, accessibility, mobility, a diverse public realm, and inclusive streetscapes, our plan aims to incorporate the Roxbury neighborhood into a place for longevity, comfort and growth as well as to connect the site to its history in the development of greater Boston.
