Project Overview

75-81 Dudley Street is the sister project of 2451 Washington Street, sharing the same development and design team. The project completes the infill of the site and serves as a portal to the John Eliot Square neighborhood in Roxbury.

The proposed program includes 20 residential units located on the upper three floors, all of which will be affordable. The housing program provides affordable first-time home ownership opportunities and accommodates a range of family income and size.

Similar to 2451 Washington Street, 75 Dudley adopts the same brick or masonry base as its sister project, and also applies the use of fiber cement panels. To add warmth to these materials, copper colored metal panels are applied to the entry points and balconies.

A central 1,500 sf outdoor space flanked by both 75 Dudley and 2451Washington will provide a connected and landscaped open space for residents of both buildings to enjoy. This landscaped outdoor area is intended for residents to use in private or as a group, and is connected directly to the indoor community space.

A MESSAGE FROM DREAM

Moving Forward in the Age of COVID-19

During these times of extraordinary disruption, DREAM Collaborative remains steadfast in our belief that architecture should work toward the Greater Good. In the wake of the COVID-19 pandemic, lines have been blurred and we’re seeing opportunities all around us to reimagine the way we live, work, and organize our society and our spaces. We are honored to play a part in the transition toward a renewed society that prioritizes well-being, equity, and innovation.

As partners, we’re bringing our curiosity and the diversity of our perspectives to conversations about how design and development will need to evolve in a post-COVID world. We’re convening panel discussions and reaching out to other minority and women-owned businesses to brainstorm solutions to the unique and compounded challenges we face. Most importantly, we’re committed to providing the highest level of service and support to our valued clients and partners in the community, who we know are also being pushed to the limits of their resources and ingenuity in order to thrive in this historic moment.
