The vision for Washington Village is to improve the quality of life in the area through a five-acre mixed-used development in South Boston’s Andrew Square that would transform largely vacant industrial buildings into a new community destination that will include a public park, middle-class apartments and condominiums, and potential amenities such as a grocery store and local retailers. There will be parking for those who will live and visit there, community open space, more than 170 trees, and better connectivity to the surrounding neighborhood via new pedestrian ways and public streets. The idea is to create a walkable neighborhood with community-serving businesses. Our vision includes a central meeting place with a range of programming, where longtime area residents and new residents alike can meet for coffee, buy food at a farmers market, ice skate, attend a car show or an art show.
Our vision also includes two important neighborhood institutions, we will provide a new home for the South Boston Historical Museum and a satellite location for South Boston Community Health Center.
