Hundreds of units planned for Roxbury’s Townsend St.

Development firm Kensington Investment Co. seeks to turn an unused parcel in Roxbury into a mixed-used residential building with hundreds of rental apartments. According to Jed Hresko, a Townsend Street resident who has helped organize community discussion, neighbors have mixed responses to the proposal. Many praise the diversity of the development team and the provision of affordable home-ownership opportunities, but many also express concern that the influx of new residents could disrupt the neighborhood and further strain an already-challenging parking and traffic situation.
