The Asian Community Development Corporation (ACDC), New Boston Fund and Suffolk Construction recently announced their three-month construction plan for the new residential project at One Greenway. At a community meeting in Chinatown on July 30, the three companies detailed their upcoming vision of the building’s utilities, and highlighted the potential job opportunities for local hires that this project would bring.
One Greenway, which is being built on Parcel 24 on corner of Hudson Street and Kneeland Street, will be two buildings with 363 units, 135 garage parking spots and an open space for the public to enjoy.
The project is scheduled for completion in June 2015. In the meantime, the structuring and roofing of the mid-rise and high-rise parts of the project is scheduled for completion by December 2014. Installation of the elevators is scheduled to be finished in January 2015, and the mechanical and interior work will proceed through February 2015. Applications for occupancy will open in the spring of 2015 with units possibly available by May 2015.
The bottom-level of the building will be property for retail and community commercial space, of which 3,300 square feet will be reserved for retail floor 1, and 5,000 square feet will be reserved for nonprofits or community commercial space on floor 2. One Greenway has hired the Boston Urban Partnership to be the broker to work with businesses interested in the retail space. ACDC will assist nonprofits.
Local construction hires need to be part of a union before they can work on One Greenway. An apprenticeship information session for the union application process is scheduled for this fall. Construction trade contractors that are certified Disadvantaged Business Enterprise, Minority Business Enterprise, or Women Owned Business Enterprise are encouraged to apply to Suffolk’s 2014 Subcontractor Development Series, in which is open through August 15.
“We take great pride in creating equal access and opportunity for quality-driven, experienced subcontractors on all of our projects, and we are thrilled to have support from the City of Boston and Massachusetts Supplier Diversity Office for our Subcontractor Development Series,” said Brian McPherson, director of diversity and workforce compliance at Suffolk Construction, in a prepared statement on July 14. About 50 subcontractors have so far applied; the selection committee will choose approximately 25 applicants.
The next meeting on the construction progress is scheduled for October.

The earlier version of this article about the construction process of One Greenway project incorrectly said One Greenway will be two buildings with 363 apartments. The two buildings will have 363 total units with the south building consisting of 51 affordable condo units, and the north building consisting of 95 affordable units and 217 market rate rentals. This version has been corrected.
