Dorchester plan would replace ‘eyesore’ with three-story building

Market included

The boarded-up store at Savin Hill Avenue and Sydney Street in Dorchester “has been an eyesore on Savin Hill’s main drag for years,” per Jennifer Smith of the Dot Reporter.

There’s a plan afoot now to replace that eyesore with a gleaming commercial building of three floors and with room for up to three tenants, including very likely a neighborhood market.

Developer James Baker recently presented the plan for 110 Savin Hill Avenue at a meeting of a neighborhood civic group, calling it “an aspirational development.”

RODE Architects is behind the modern design, which, by the looks of the rendering, seeks to integrate the new building with its surrounding streetscape.

Nothing’s finalized yet, and some neighbors are apparently concerned about possible traffic. Stay tuned.
