The Newmarket Station opened in 2013 and is located on the major arterial Massachusetts Avenue in Roxbury and brings public transit access to the South Bay Center outdoor shopping mall and the Newmarket Business Center. Both are centers of major employment in the Corridor. The train will allow residents along the whole Corridor to commute to jobs and shopping in these centers.
The New England Center for Arts and Technology (NECAT) provides high-quality and industry-relevant job skills training for adults, and hands-on arts education for youth. NECAT offers targeted job training, support and employment services to prepare students to secure and retain career-ladder jobs in the growing food services industry.
NECAT was encouraged to locate to the Fairmount Corridor by Dorchester Bay EDC.
