Mary Ellen McCormack


Mary Ellen McCormack is a transformative redevelopment of the 27-acre, 1,016-unit, 35 building Boston Housing Authority site in South Boston into an over 3,000-unit, vibrant, mixed-income community with open space, bike corridors, and neighborhood retail. The project connects the Andrew Square and JFK/UMass MBTA Redline stops and spans from Dorchester Avenue to Moakley Park. The redevelopment will create a truly mixed-income neighborhood and will be an example of energy efficiency with all buildings achieving Passive Housing standards. 


The first half of the proposal includes 1,365 new units in 9 buildings across 19 acres and totals 1.5M gross square feet, including 1.38M square feet of residential space, 44k square feet of retail space, 25k square feet of commercial space, and 2.3 acres of open space. A member of the Boston Communities team worked on this project while employed by the developer.
