Four Corners Plaza, a mixed-use development on Bowdoin Street in the Four Corners commercial district of Dorchester will feature 35 affordable rental units for families earning less than 60 percent AMI, and about 4,000 square feet of ground-floor retail or business space.
The project originally included more commercial space than was feasible, so half was converted to residential, adding an additional unit to the plan. Four Corners Plaza will be LEED Silver certifiable with an energy-efficient and transit- oriented design.
The two buildings will be located at the intersection of Bowdoin Street and Bowdoin Avenue, within walking distance of the Four Corners/Geneva Station on the Fairmount Line. We applied for more project funding this year and hope to close at the end of 2020.
