BOSTON-Urban Edge broke ground Tuesday on the second phase of the $250-million Jackson Square redevelopment at a ceremony that also marked the grand opening of The Community Builders Inc.’s 225 Centre, the first phase of the project. When the 14-building, transit-oriented development is completed, it will reconnect Boston’s Jamaica Plain and Roxbury neighborhoods, which had been disrupted by an unsuccessful highway expansion program in the 1970s.

For its part, 225 Centre features 103 apartments, 35 of which are affordable, as well as more than 16,000 square feet of commercial space and an underground parking garage with 86 spaces. Bart Mitchell, TCB’s president and CEO, comments that “225 Centre and the other buildings in the Jackson Square master plan provide mixed-income apartments and commercial space that will be instrumental to spur economic development and help reconnect the Jamaica Plain and Roxbury neighborhoods.” The property is a joint venture between TCB and Mitchell Properties.
