Developers plan project in Roxbury

A team of developers is proposing to build a $44 million complex along Melnea Cass Boulevard in Roxbury that would include an expanded Tropical Foods supermarket, residences, offices, and stores.

Madison Park Development Corp. and Tropical Foods International said they intend to begin construction in July, hoping to take advantage of tax credits to help replace the current Tropical Foods. The project would occupy 2.75 acres of property, known as Parcel 10, at the corner of Melnea Cass Boulevard and Washington Street.

The developers outlined their plans in a letter filed with the city earlier this month. In addition to the 40,000-square-foot supermarket, the project would include construction of a 54,000-square-foot retail and office building, and rehabilitation of an existing building into apartments and stores.

The project is one of several proposed to remake a large swath of Roxbury near where it intersects with the South End. The city is also building a new office complex for the Boston public schools in Dudley Square, and another developer is planning housing and retail on another vacant lot along Melnea Cass.

Madison Park and Tropical Foods stated in their filing that the Parcel 10 project will proceed in three phases, starting with the supermarket and then the apartments, offices, and stores.

The project still needs approval from the Boston Redevelopment Authority before construction can proceed.
