An affordable housing development in Uphams Corner in Dorchester has been approved by the BRA, according to the Boston Globe.
This is the first phase of major development in nearby Dudley Square and will bring a large amount of affordable housing to the area.
Indigo Block is an 89-unit apartment and condo building and one of the first large scale projects that is located along the new commuter rail Indigo Line.
Half of the units will rent for no more than $1,200 for a two-bedroom and the rest will, for the most part, won't exceed $2,400 a month.
This is a $37 million project that is being launched by Dorchester Bay Economic Development Council. It also includes some industrial and commercial space that hopes to retain jobs in that area of the city.
The land for the development was formerly owned by the city and officials have been hoping to develop it as affordable housing.
This new development comes along with another 16-unit condo building that has also been approved on the other side of Dudley Square.
