MBHP Tasks Margulies Perruzzi For New HQ Design
The planned development of the mixed-use One Roxbury Crossing took another step forward this week when the Metropolitan Boston Housing Partnership tapped Margulies Perruzzi Architects to design its new 27k SF HQ at the development.
The offices will give the nonprofit room for growth and will allow it to become "one of the many community-focused tenants in One Roxbury Crossing, which is shaping a new urban space in the neighborhood," says MBHP executive director Chris Norris. He's shown with MBHP board co-chairs Cynthia Lacasse and Steven Rioff at the eighth annual MBHP Founders Celebration.
The HQ space will provide work areas and conference rooms for MBHP’s more than 150 employees, who assist residents with navigating the affordable housing process. An important feature of the new space will be the client-facing areas where MBHP staff will meet with their resident clients.
Developed by Mission Hill Neighborhood Housing Services, One Roxbury Crossing will replace a long-vacant, two-acre site in Mission Hill. The overall development is being designed by Goody Clancy Architects, and will feature retail, affordable housing and office space near the Ruggles Crossing Orange Line MBTA station. BRA has yet to approve the project.
