The developers who replaced a ramshackle old building on Tremont Street at St. Cyprians Place with a six-story, 16-unit building are now proposing to replace a neighboring ramshackle building with a 24-unit addition.
Because the site is a short walk to the Ruggles T station and Northeastern University, Boston Real Estate Collaborative and Urban Core Development will ask the city to let them bypass the normal requirements that they provide parking spaces.
The new units would be "designed specifically for students walking to and from
campus," they write in a filing with the BPDA.
Also unusual for Boston: Proposed plans for two three-bedroom and two four-bedroom units. Four units in the building will be marketed as affordable.
Construction should take 14 to 18 months once the addition receives city approvals, the developers say.
