Community meeting for Doyle’s project set for October 1

Watermark Development and Scales Architecture are proposing a mixed-use development that hopes to bring back Doyle’s Cafe.

A post on the Save Doyle’s Cafe Facebook page says:

“Priorities have shifted these past few months as we struggle through this pandemic and all of us take stock of what is dear. While we know there are more pressing issues at this time, we also know that our community will recover and life will resume some day. When that day comes, we hope that our beloved pub will be once again part of our community.  And on this front, there is a glimmer of hope and possibility…

There is a proposal on the table for a revived Doyle’s which would include a pub/restaurant and a community room. We’ve even heard that the road race would some day be revived. Hard to imagine at this particular moment in time, but certainly a ritual that would be great to resume.”

The socially distanced community meeting is set for October 1 at 6:00pm in the Doyle’s parking lot at 3484 Washington St., where the development team will be present to share the proposal and address community questions and concerns. 

Lee Goodman of Watermark Development told the Gazette that “the project will be a modest, mixed-use development that seeks to restore Doyle’s. Unlike some of the larger box buildings along Washington Street, we are proposing to make the renovated Doyle’s the focal point of the design with the housing component a smaller aspect of the overall project.”

For any questions related to the proposal, call Lee Goodman at 617-212-8583, and for questions relating to the community meeting, contact Lindsey Santana of the Mayor’s Office of Neighborhood Services at [email protected].
