The opening of these establishments marks another milestone for the thriving business district having created more than 20 new jobs.
Since its designation as a Boston Main Streets District in 1985, Roslindale Village Main Street has guided development in Roslindale Square and along Washington Street by mobilizing hundreds of volunteers and working through partnerships with neighborhood groups, real estate developers, government, and businesses entities. In the Square and along Washington Street, Roslindale Village’s success can be seen today in new businesses, storefront improvements, residential /commercial developments, historic preservation projects, at the farmers market, and in rejuvenated open spaces.
