Bartlett Station Groundbreaking Heralds Transformation without Displacement

BOSTON (July 31, 2017)—A major new development in Roxbury is set to transform a contaminated, overgrown bus yard once owned by MBTA into new businesses, apartments and jobs that will both expand economic opportunity and protect long-time residents from displacement.

The first phase of Bartlett Station, which celebrates its groundbreaking on Wednesday, August 2, at 11:00 AM, is just one of several construction projects planned for nearly nine acres of abandoned land at Washington Street and Bartlett Street. It includes 60 rental homes—with 32 specifically designated for low-income households—as well as a ground floor grocery store that will expand access to healthy food throughout the area and create jobs. A second building with 16 condominiums is also starting construction as part of this initial phase.
