Developer Patrick Mahoney recently submitted plans to the BPDA (the former BRA) to replace a two-family house at 16 Boardman St. with 19 condos.
Unusual for a building located within easy walk of a T stop - Orient Heights on the Blue Line - the developer is proposing more parking spaces than residential units - 27 in a garage.
However, that is still three short of the number of spaces required by city zoning for that area, so the project would require a variance from the Zoning Boar of Appeals. The proposal will also require several other variances, including for the number of floors, height and setback.
The three-story, $6.2-million building would include two units markets at "affordable" prices, Mahoney says in his filing with the BPDA.
The building’s massing is derived from an assessment of its site context and urban conditions. A mix of Hardie Plank and metal panels will provide a strong design statement along Boardman Street, setting the tone for strong future development design. The building skin will be a composition of brick masonry, metal panels, Hardie Plank siding, and panels. The proposed total main building height is 35 feet to the main cornice with a common mezzanine level, utility room, and roof deck above the main roof.
