The new residential building will bring housing units and ground floor retail space to Dorchester Avenue. The building embraces its corner site with a broad curving form. The massing steps down to meet its lower-scale residential neighbors.
The commercial/retail spaces will serve the local community with a food market and convenience store and restaurant. Below grade there is an additional 10,000 square feet of parking, storage, and mechanical space, intended to accommodate the needs of the building’s residents, as well as the provision of 26 parking spaces. Floors two through fi ve will contain 38 total residential units, with a mix of studios, one, and two bedroom units. The project scope and scale furthers the residential policy goals of Mayor Martin J. Walsh’s 2030 Housing Plan.
