Developers this week signaled their formal intent to replace a parking lot next to the Mattapan Square trolley station with a two-building, 144-unit mixed-income development.
In a letter to the BPDA, Preservation of Affordable Housing and Nuestra Comunidad Development Corp., said the bulk of the $57-million project would be in one six-story building housing housing 135 apartments, from studios to three-bedrooms, with a mix of affordable and market-rate units.. A second, four-story building, planned for latter in development, would house nine condos.
The two groups won development rights to the 2.6-acre parcel, which runs along River Street near the Mattapan High-Speed Line, from the MBTA. The project includes 50 parking spaces for T riders - and 70 for project residents - in an underground garage.
By submitting the letter, they indicated they would file more detailed plans within two months.
