Boston seeks bids for green housing project

Boston officials are hoping to again push the envelope on green building, asking developers to design and build small communities of ultra-efficient buildings that collectively will produce more energy than they consume.

This week Boston began accepting proposals from developers to build an “E+ Community” on 11 vacant city-owned parcels in Mission Hill. The 1.3 acres of land, located on Parker and Terrace streets, would be filled with a mix of dozens of housing units and communal gardens, and could include space for retail, commercial, or light industrial use.
