This article is more than 8 years old.

The City of Boston is considering several proposals that would spend millions to redevelop vacant, city-owned land in the Dudley Square section of Roxbury.

The Boston Redevelopment Authority unveiled four of its request for proposals that would cover nearly four acres adjacent to Melnea Cass Boulevard.

The authority's spokeswoman, Jessica Shumaker, says the city is thrilled about bringing new opportunities to this neighborhood.

"Four proposals is great. It gives us a lot of things to review and choose, and they all answer the RFP in the way that they have avenues to create new jobs and bring new excitement to the area," she said.

The proposals include plans for work-force housing, as well as retail and office space.
