On Thursday, the Boston Planning and Development Agency (BPDA) approved the development project at 603 Dorchester Avenue. This building will include 24 residential units, retail and restaurant space. Unique for local real estate, this building will not offer any parking spots due to the fact its located across the street from Andrew Square station.
Just the facts:
There will be 4 housing units with 20 market-rate and four affordable units, two accessible units.
This will generate 45 construction jobs, restaurant jobs, commercial space, $7 million in investments
There will be $10,000 in community benefits toward Moakley Park improvements and a neighborhood restaurant
Size: 26,227 square feet
Located at 603 Dorchester Avenue in South Boston’s Andrew Square, the project site is approximately 4,074 square feet of land, currently occupied by a two-story building and parking lot. The new building will be constructed as a six-story, mixed-use building with 24 residential units, four of which will be Inclusionary Development Policy (IDP) units. There will be a mix of 22 one-bedroom units and two studio units. The ground floor will consist of 2,012 square feet of commercial retail space for new restaurant use and the project will also include a communal space for residents that is approximately 800 square feet.
So there you go!
Just what we need in Boston- nor unaffordable housing.
T minus 10 minutes till the usual idiot chimes in about how car sales are on the decline because Boston residents prefer the MBTA. Have fun finding a parking spot in Andrew Square, you got 20 more permanent vehicles coming to the neighborhood.
24 hours late but here I am. And I think the actual sales across the country are doing fine, but car ownership is absolutely on the decline specific to boston proper.
One way to counter the no parking on site is to deny this building,s address from getting resident parking stickers
