Asian Community Development Corporation has consistently engaged the community for the past 12 years on the development of Parcel 24. This September, fencing was erected around the sliver of land at Hudson and Kneeland streets and sitework has begun. In 2015, this corner will be home to 295 households, 95 of whom will be low-income families.
The Asian Community Development Corporation organized a public safety awareness workshop for Chinatown residents on Sept. 7 at the Metropolitan Community Room. It was conducted by Boston District A1 police officer Sgt. Tom Lema, who has worked the Chinatown district for 18 years.
Imagine what Chinatown would be like if there was no Orange Line, Red Line and Silver Line — Chinatown would not be the bustling and vibrant community it is today. For city planners and designers, we call this type of development pattern a transit-oriented development.
