  1. Agenda

    This is a meeting led by the Mayor’s Office of Arts and Culture (MOAC) in collaboration with the Boston Housing Authority (BHA). This will be the first of several meetings regarding the future of the property located at 290 North Beacon Street. In 2023, it was announced that the City would be the recipient of the property as a result of development project impact mitigation for the project located at 155 North Beacon Street. Earlier this year, the City of Boston received approval to accept the 290 North Beacon property in order to benefit the arts and culture community.

    Attendees of this meeting can expect to learn about the history of the City’s planned acquisition of the site as well as a high-level overview of the planned partnership between MOAC and BHA for the redevelopment of the site. This is also an opportunity for the City to learn more about the community priorities for this project and for residents to influence aspects of the project and public process.

    The format of this meeting will include a brief presentation from City representatives followed by a community discussion and opportunity for input from attendees. No final decisions will be made in this meeting.


    • Inform community members of the history and context of the acquisition of the property
    • The City receive feedback from community members on the eventual redevelopment and community process
