Design work continues for DotBlock construction; Spring 2020 start expected

The launch of the $200-million DotBlock development at Glover’s Corner is expected to begin next spring, says Catherine O’Neill, a representative for the developers, Samuels and Associates and Wintergold, LLC, who will build 488 housing units in four buildings – up from the 362 originally envisioned for the site.

With full city approvals in hand, O’Neill said last week, “the team is working diligently to finish up design and expects to file for a permit by the end of the year.  It looks like construction will start in the first quarter of 2020,” she added. “We’re still working on going to market with retail.”

The complex will include about 30,000 square feet of neighborhood-focused retail space and more than an acre of public space. Revised plans that have been approved also include a 345-space underground garage - compared to the original plans for a 5-story, 450-space above-ground garage.
