In Boston’s resurgent Dorchester neighborhood, a major transit-oriented development draws on the city’s industrial past while charting a new path for smart growth with much-needed mixed-income housing and fresh retail opportunities. The six-story, community, called Treadmark, activates one of Dorchester’s most prominent corner sites.

A mix of 32 luxury condominiums and 52 affordable rental homes create housing options for longtime neighborhood residents and fresh arrivals alike at a variety of income levels. Offering access to subway, bus, and trolley service, and with minimal on-site parking, Treadmark is a compelling example of how thoughtful development teams can help reduce dependence on cars, increase pedestrian and bicycle activity, and boost transit ridership. 

Inspired in name and design by the former Ashmont Tire Company, which had occupied this location for over 50 years, Treadmark fits in with the character of the low-rise neighborhood while significantly enhancing the local streetscape and pedestrian experience.
