Dedham 1940 Census help - part of Washington St missing?

Classification: Query
Surnames: Fellini Bongo
I have been searching for 1940 Census records for Felix/Felice & Rose/Rosina Fellini, and Rose's stepfather & mother, Oto/Ottino & Marie/Mary Bongo, but can't seem to find them. The Fellinis lived at 269 Washington St, and the Bongos lived at 244 Washington St. I have confirmed these addresses for the families in both the 1930 Census (Oto listed as Antonio) and 1942 WWII draft records for Felix and Oto. Fellini children are Andrew b1922, Mario b1924, Joseph b1926, Gino b1928, Rudolph b1930, Emma b1935, Helen b 1938; and the Bongo children are Catherine b1908, Helen/Eleanor b1915, Michael b 1918. By 1940, Catherine is married and living in Boston - I have her 1940 Census record.

However, I can't seem to find the 1940 Census records for the rest of the family. I have searched using lots of different combinations and wildcards - no luck. I think their addresses should fall within ED 11-88 (see attached map, with the approximate locations marked), but I've gone through it several times, page by page, and that section of Washington St doesn't seem to be there. I also manually reviewed the neighboring EDs. Could this section of Washington St have been skipped in 1940? Or am I looking in the wrong place? The ED in 1930 was 11-42. I realize this area has changed much since 1940, as it's now right across the street from the back of the Dedham Mall.

Can anyone help me with this mystery? Thanks in advance!
