Land is available at Blue Hill Avenue, the historic home of Boston’s Black community and immigrant populations.


The City of Boston wants to give people a shot at owning parcels of land along Blue Hill Avenue. The Department of Neighborhood Development (DND) has been working with the community to supply DND developed City-owned vacant land thoughtfully, and in alignment with the community values is the goal of the “Blue Hill Action Plan.”

The mayor’s administration intends to dispose of 30 city-owned vacant parcels, totaling 97,000 square feet. Possible uses include residential, commercial, retail, office space, community uses, and open space.
