The Boston Redevelopment Authority said Monday it has received four proposals for two Roxbury, Mass., parcels that include retail, hotel and mixed-income residences.
The parcels Parcels 9 & 10 are part of the Roxbury Strategic Master Plan designed to stimulate economic growth in the Boston neighborhood over the next two decades.
Among the four proposals:
Washington Crossing Partners LLC of Duxbury, Mass., proposed a $125 million redevelopment project for both parcels with 365,000 square feet of commercial, retail and workforce housing, and approximately 250 parking spaces. The retail component would include expansion opportunities for local and minority-owned businesses.
Parcel 9 Partners LLC a joint venture between New Atlantic Development and Nuestra Comunidad Development Corp. proposed for Parcel 9 Shawmut Green, a $28.5 million transit-oriented, mixed-use, mixed-income urban village. Included would be housing both rental and ownership retail space and an entrepreneurship training center.
Also for Parcel 9, Urbanica Design + Development proposed Melnea Hotel & Residences, a 10-story, 150-162 room hotel with 52 units of mixed-income housing and parking for 139 cars.
For Parcel 10, a joint venture between Madison Park CDC and Tropical Foods International includes a project that would integrate the parcel and the adjacent building and land now owned by Tropical Foods with commercial and residential uses. The development program includes mixed-income residential apartments and street-level retail.
The BRA said the RFPs will be reviewed internally and then presented to the community at a later date.

I didn't take a look at the specifics of the RFP and the requirements included within...I'm hoping that the BRA (under the direction of the mayor) didn't allow the community to dictate the type of impossible demands and lease payments that have killed Parcel P-3...P-3 had potential but everyone wanted something out of it and by the end there wasn't enough value on the table to justify construction.
