Lots of changes coming to this neck of the week

On Thursday, the Boston Planning & Development Agency board approved the next phase of Core Investments Inc.’s On the Dot project.  This 21-acre strip of Dorchester Avenue near Andrew Square will be transformed into a development of life-science, retail, and residential buildings.

According to the Boston Globe, this section of the project the BPDA approved will include three life-science and office buildings next to two residential buildings — a 16-story residential building with 237 market-rate units and a seven-story building with 94 units of senior housing — which was approved earlier this year, totaling almost 1.4 million square feet. Wowza. 

When all is said and done, the final On the Dot project will be composed of a 3.8 million-square-foot commercial and residential development with 11 buildings and 2.9 acres of open space. There will also be five residential buildings will have 1,450 apartments, 17 percent of which will be set aside at affordable rents.  This new complex will be right near yet another life science project proposed by National Development that will replace Gold’s Gym and a group of Marr Rigging warehouses at 323-365 Dorchester Ave. with four buildings of mixed-use development.

Core Investment Inc. is hoping to break ground on the first phase of the project late this year or in early 2025.
