Olmsted Green is situated on the former site of the Boston State Hospital in Boston`s Dorchester neighborhood. The property extends over 42 acres in the heart of the city and is adjacent to the Massachusett`s Audobon Society`s Boston Nature Center and Wildlife Sanctuary. The site sat idle and un-developed for more than 25 years before Lena Park Community Development Corporation partnered with New Boston to bring new life to the property.
Olmsted Green represents one of the most ambitious, progressive developments currently underway in New England. When completed, the community will include 287 workforce housing condominiums and 153 affordable rental units. 400 jobs in construction and 400 permanent positions will be created with 20 acres worth of job training facilities and property management. Energy-efficient green development will offer the rarity of green, natural spaces in close proximity to the city. In addition, the project includes 66 units of senior housing, a mental health center, plus a job training center, fitness facility and CDC Community Center. The unprecedented urban residential community is transforming 42 acres in the heart of Boston, featuring the most significant creation of homeownership opportunities, jobs, skills training, and health and fitness facilities in decades.The initial phase of townhouses (19 units) was substantially completed at the end of October 2008 and sales are currently underway. The first phase of rental housing (51 units) at the property was completed in December 2008.
