This mixed-use redevelopment project is on Washington Street in the heart of Roxbury’s Egleston Square. The project represents an important phase in Urban Edge Development Corporation’s strategy to revitalize the Egleston/Jackson Square neighborhood. The two new buildings include 64 affordable housing units and 8,300 square feet of ground floor commercial space. The project has received wide attention for the cutting edge green building-design strategies used in its construction. By utilizing solar energy, environmentally sensitive materials and other energy-efficient building design techniques, Urban Edge intends to significantly cut Egleston Crossing’s energy usage.
