A developer has proposed a 40-unit apartment development on Blue Hill Avenue between Quincy and Holborn streets that would include 27 affordable units and 5 apartments for people who make just a bit too much too qualify for those.
In addition to a four-story apartment building, the Community Builders, Inc. is proposing a two-family house as part of the construction, which would replace a series of city-owned lots that have been vacant for decades.
In a filing with the BRA, the developer is proposing 32 parking spaces and bicycle storage, as well as first-floor retail space.
In addition, the Community Builders would create "a dedicated, contemplative/memorial open space on the Blue Hill Avenue/Quincy Street corner."
Community Builders hopes to begin construction this fall, with occupancy ready in the winter of 2016/2017.
