RFP: Vacant, 1880 historic factory building in city center available to be redeveloped as educational facility with mixed-use (MA)

In November 18, 2020, the City of Boston issued an RFP for the redevelopment of the historic Owen Nawn Factory building on Washington Street in Roxbury‘s Dudley Square, according to a request for proposals released by the city’s Department of Neighborhood Development.

The 1880 brick building occupies the smaller part of a two-parcel 10,841-square-foot site adjacent to the colonial-era Eliot Burying Ground and the long-vacant Parcel 8, at the corner of Washington Street and Melnea Cass Boulevard.

Developers are encouraged to coordinate their redevelopment efforts with development proposals for Parcel 8 or to bid on both. The city would prefer redevelopment of a public, Roxbury-centric educational facility along with commercial, office and/or other non-profit public uses.
