Greenway, Parcel 1 Housing Groundbreaking, October 28, 2011Governor Deval Patrick today joined local officials and community members to break ground on a major housing development project on the Rose F. Kennedy Greenway.

Located on the corners of Causeway, Beverly and Haverhill streets, the site known as Parcel 1 will be transformed into “The Victor”, a 12-story, 286-unit apartment building with 138 parking spaces and 17,000 square feet of retail space. The project will create an estimated 400 construction jobs during the course of building and additional jobs through future retail occupants.

"Massachusetts is creating jobs faster than most other states thanks to projects and partnerships like this one,” said Governor Patrick. "I know that this development will serve as a national model on how to revitalize our cities."

Governor Patrick cited the unprecedented level of cooperation among officials from Mayor Menino and the City of Boston, MassDOT, the Federal Highway Administration, and neighbors of the project. Parcel 1 once stood in the shadows of the elevated Central Artery and was slated for redevelopment as part of the Central Artery/Tunnel project mitigation.

Construction on the project began in August 2011 with a completion date set for early 2013. 

“This is a great example of how we can be creative with land we’ve reclaimed from the elevated artery,” said MassDOT Secretary Richard Davey. “In today’s world, we have to look beyond transportation projects as a means for moving people and goods; we must also consider what impact they have on a community and how they can benefit the residents and businesses of the area."
