A developer has proposed a 5-story condo building on what is now half of a parking lot at 377 W. 1 St. in South Boston.
Donald Clancy is proposing to use the roughly 8,000-square-foot lot for a building with nine condos - six with two bedrooms and three with three bedrooms - and 15 parking spaces in a first-floor garage. Some space on the first floor would be set aside for commercial use - likely a restaurant - according to his filing with the BRA.
The building’s Dorchester Street and West First Street façades will reflect a pedestrian-friendly design strategy, including an inviting and attractive building entry and design elements such as, non-intrusive downspot lighting on the building’s exterior surfaces and human-scale design elements. The building provides a generous setback on the West First Street side to allow for maximum enjoyment of the sidewalk along the project’s northeasterly axis, and to provide the opportunity for possible future seasonal outdoor seating for the intended restaurant use.
