UMass Boston Bayside Development Site


Boston, MA –

DREAM Collaborative and Stantec have been engaged to provide site analysis, urban design, masterplanning, and permitting for the former Bayside Expo Center site at Columbia Point. The mixed-use site envisions residential, academic, office/lab, and retail components to create a vibrant 24/7 community. The site’s proximity to downtown Boston, readily available public transit, and nearby waterfront access combine to envision a destination where a diverse community lives, learns, and thrives.

The new planned neighborhood would consist of approximately 3.5 million sf of new mixed-use development over 20 acres. Extensive community benefits will potentially include public parking, a boardwalk with connections to the existing Harborwalk and Dorchester Shores Reservation, and 35,400 sf of hardscape to include a retail pavilion/multi-cultural center.
