January 20th, 2017


Coming soon to Dorchester in 2018 is the expansion of the South Bay Shopping Center, which will add 500,000 square feet of mixed-use hotels, theatres, restaurants and residences. The South Bay Shopping Center currently has 700,000 square foot of retail space. This is a major expansion to the site by the developer Edens, which was approved by the Boston Planning & Development Agency (formerly known as the BRA) earlier this year. Edens has developed shopping centers for 50 years including properties such as Burlington Crossroads, Middlesex Commons, and Center at Hudson.
