A developer has filed plans to replace a low-slung commercial building with a 45-unit, five-story apartment building at 839 Beacon St., between the circle and the turnpike.
The Fong family of Toronto says six of the units in the $17.5-million building will be affordable. The plan calls for 30 parking spaces and 4,500 square feet of first-floor retail space.
In planning the building and site, careful attention was paid to the existing environment with the building’s massing and height matching the existing apartment buildings directly east of the project site, and the exterior building materials selected to harmonize with the existing neighborhood.
Construction could begin towards the end of this year, with the building ready for tenants a year later.
