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.

Proposal deadline: February 19, 2020.
