The Department of Neighborhood Development (DND) will hold a community meeting on Wednesday, November 7 at 6:30 p.m. at the Nazzaro Center regarding the request for proposal (RFP) process for 48-50 Tileston Street.
The Mayor’s Office filed an order to declare surplus the two vacant buildings at 48 and 50 Tileston Street earlier this year, transferring custody, care and management to the Public Facilities Commission.
This meeting will discuss the upcoming property disposition process for the two buildings. Community members are encouraged to attend and provide feedback for the development guidelines that will be used in the upcoming RFP.
At a City Council meeting in July, Deputy Director of Real Estate Management and Sales Donald Wright stressed that the city would work with the North End on what the community would like to see move into the property. “Having that community input in the RFP helps focuses the responses we want to see.”
One local group that has expressed interest in the space is the North End Music and Performing Arts Center, currently located near the Paul Revere Mall. After this meeting and the community comment period, the DND will draft the RFP and open it to potential developers.
