The Boston Planning & Development Agency (BPDA) approved a $5 billion mixed-use project last week in Dorchester's Columbia Point.  The 21-building project will include lab space, office, commercial, community and residential space that will be home to 1,967 apartments. 

The site is currently a parking lot for the most part, owned by UMass Boston.  Part of the project stipulation is that a certain part of the development's resources will go towards supporting their educational programs.  It will turn the parking lot into open green spaces and also include flood protection with the Dorchester Shores Reservation.  The construction will be done in 3 phases.
