What Will Become of This Rice Military Corner?

“It looks like someone has bought the whole block between Feagan, Westcott, and Knox in Rice Military next to the Commonwealth Title office building,” a reader writes in accompaniment of a series of photos. “There are several old cottages with for sale signs showing the houses as ‘to be moved’ although they don’t look salvageable to me.” What, the reader wants to know, is going to happen here?


So far, there’s been no word on that score from Oakton Foundation, a nonprofit that city records show is the proud new owner of the properties in question. In September and November of last year, Oakton Foundation was completing the purchase of up to 8,132 sq. ft. of land here spanning 5 different properties: 407, 419, and 502 Knox St., along with 410 Westcott and 5908 Feagan St.

Here are the rest of the reader’s photos; immediately below is 410 Westcott St.:
