Groundbreaking held for HNEF's Bartlett Station project in Roxbury

On Wednesday, August 2, the developers of Bartlett Station held a groundbreaking ceremony to celebrate new economic opportunity generated by this transformative project. Two buildings are currently under construction – one, which contains the 28 rental apartments (of a total of 60) and retail space supported by HNEF’s investment of $2.9 million, and another that will provide market and affordable homes to new homeowners. The ground floor retail space will be occupied by a grocery store tenant, providing access to fresh and healthy foods for area residents.

Bartlett Station is notable for: its scope, the number of jobs being created, the percentage of contracting jobs going to minority business enterprises, the number of jobs filled by workers of color, women, and Boston residents, and for the transformative impact this project will have in one of Boston’s most important neighborhoods.
