65 Bay Street

65 Bay Street

Overview:

65 Bay Street was Dorchester Bay’s first foray into light industrial development. In 2002, we completed the new construction of an 80,000 square foot facility on the site of the former Boston Insulated Wire and Cable Factory, next to the Savin Hill subway station on the Red Line. The site had been a contaminated brownfield.  Using a combination of public sources, Dorchester Bay cleaned up the blighted site and custom built a facility for a printing company, Spire, Inc. The company created over 160 jobs at the facility.  Dorchester Bay sold the property to Spire in 2014, and they continue to grow their business there.

Units:
