Dudley Municipal Center - Boston, MA
Construction is complete on the $115.9 million Dudley Municipal Center, considered a centerpiece of the City of Boston’s revitalization of Dudley Square in the economically disadvantaged Roxbury community. Most of the office space in the 170,000-square-foot facility is occupied by the Boston Public Schools administration in an effort to consolidate services currently scattered across the city and to better connect city government with residents. The multi-story LEED-certified building has an estimated occupancy of 450 to 500 municipal office workers as well as street-level retail space. The project’s design calls for preservation of a portion of the historic Ferdinand’s Building, which currently occupies the site and has been a community landmark for many decades. The project has served as a catalyst for additional development and economic activity in the community.
