Edens to Build $200M Mixed-Use Development in Boston’s South Bay

BOSTON — The Boston Redevelopment Authority Board has given approval for Edens to construct a 700,000-square-foot mixed-use development in the South Bay submarket of Boston. The 10-acre, $200 million development will sit adjacent to Edens’ South Bay Center in Boston’s Dorchester neighborhood.

This approval was the last hurdle to starting the project, and Edens plans to break ground in June.

The proposal calls for 113,000 square feet of restaurants and shops, a 12-screen luxury AMC Theatre with IMAX, a flagship Wahlburger’s, a 130-room hotel and two parking garages.

Edens will also partner with Mill Creek Residential to develop 475 multifamily units at the project. The multifamily component will contain a mix of studio to three-bedroom apartments.

The mixed-use project will be built on a site that currently contains a vacant industrial property and concrete plant. During construction, Edens also plans to upgrade the 427,289-square-foot South Bay Center, which is home to tenants such as OfficeMax, Marshalls, Old Navy, Target, The Home Depot, Bed Bath & Beyond and TJ Maxx.

Columbia, S.C.-based Edens develops, owns and operates community shopping centers in primary U.S. markets. Its institutional-quality portfolio contains more than 130 retail centers.

Mill Creek Residential Trust LLC is a national multifamily company focused on the development, acquisition and operation of apartment communities. The Dallas-based company’s portfolio contains 29 communities, representing nearly 13,000 apartment homes that are operating, under construction or in the planning stage.
