Groundbreaking at VietAID’s Upper Washington in Dorchester

Utile helped celebrate the groundbreaking ceremony of VietAID’s Upper Washington Development, featuring remarks from Boston Mayor Marty Walsh as well as other elected officials, project financial supporters, and community stakeholders. The mixed-use project features 35 affordable units as well as 3,000 square feet of commercial space and community use space. Located in the Four Corners section of Dorchester, the project aims to strengthen revitalization efforts in the area by developing underutilized land into much needed family-style apartments and public amenities. The project is being built by Nauset Construction and is expected to be complete in May 2016.
