Potential Dorchester development sites for sale right now, mapped

One set of properties is asking $6M

View as Map

Last week brought a thunderclap of news that four properties in Dorchester were asking a combined $6,000,000 despite a total valuation of about $871,000.

Why the discrepancy? Because Dorchester, that's why. Boston's biggest neighborhood by area is suddenly a hotbed of large-scale development amid steady demand, and that has made existing plots of develop-able land all that much more desirable. The quartet in question, for instance, is right near the massive multi-building expansion of the South Bay shopping center.

Check out this map of those potential new-development sites in Dorchester and others. Some, like the quartet, could hold larger-scale projects, while others are offered as possible condo conversions or tear-down/ground-up apartment (or condo) buildings.

If we're missing any, do let us know.

The two-unit multi-family is one of that quartet of properties asking $6,000,000 total. Two Fields is asking $2,000,000, but is only available as a package with 4 Fields Court, 6 Fields Court and 5 Baker Court.

The 3-BR, 1-BA single-family is one of those four properties asking $6,000,000. It's asking $2,000,000 specifically, but is only available as a package with 5 Baker Court, 2 Fields Court, and 6 Fields Court.

This is the part of the $6,000,000 quartet without a house on it. There's no listing photo available, though it shares the same wistful views of downtown Boston as the rest of the package. It's priced individually at $1,000,000, though only available with the others.

5 Claridge Terrace

This one's being offered at a potentially cut-rate price. The listing for the three-unit multi-family says $479,900, but apparently the seller will consider all reasonable offers. It's billed as a potential condo conversion.
