Architect's rendering.

Savage Properties has formally proposed a 15-unit building to replace the foundations for two three-family buildings that were never built at 40 Fisher Ave. on Mission Hill.

The proposed building would have two one-bedroom units, six two-bedroom units and seven three-bedrooms. One of the smaller units and one of the three-bedroom units would be marketed as affordable. The developer is proposing ten parking spaces in a garage and a fitness room, and hopes to begin construction this fall.
