A week from today the developers of One Greenway will host an official groundbreaking for the Chinatown complex bordering the Rose Kennedy Greenway on a site formerly known as Parcel 24. Boston Mayor Marty Walsh is expected to speak. Construction has actually been under way since last fall, but next Tuesday's event is meant to accentuate the affordable-housing element, which will, according to a release from the developers, "bring a substantial addition of new affordable housing stock to Boston's downtown and will help retain working families in the urban core."
All totaled, One Greenway's two new buildings will house 363 residential units, 146 of them designated as affordable (95 rentals in one tower, dubbed the North Building, and another 51 affordable condos in the South Building). The buildings will bookend one-third of an acre of publicly accessible open space. One Greenway is also due to have 5,000 square feet of community space. And! It's transit-oriented: It's a few blocks from South Station. That's big these days. Big.
