The Boston Planning & Development Agency (BPDA) has approved a new eight-story, 159 room hotel at 248 Dorchester Ave. where the Enterprise Rent-a-Car is. In addition to the 159 hotel rooms, it will also include about 20,000 square feet of amenity space, featuring a restaurant, lounge, and outdoor deck. There will also be a valet-parking garage for about 60 vehicles and commercial retail space also are planned.
The Evergreen Property also purchased Doughboy’s located at 220 Dorchester Ave. So does this purchase have anything to do with the future hotel? But as of now Doughboy is not going anywhere! According to the Boston Globe, Doughboy owner, Phyllis Fandel, owner says they are only in year 5 of a 25 year lease. Fandel says she planning on not closing unless the new building owner pays her to move to a new location or an early retirement.
