A developer is seeking city permission to tear down two two-story houses and a garage on Liverpool Street between Maverick and Decatur streets to put up a five-story building with 22 residential units and some office space.
In a recent filing with the BPDA, developer Benjamin Goodman of Flying Cloud Realty Trust says the project, at 75-85 Liverpool St., would fit in nicely with the 56-apartment Coopersmith Village and 200-unit Boston East planned for Border Street nearby.
The Proposed Project would create a residential development combining market-rate and affordable housing opportunities in an aesthetic appropriate in scale, massing and design between Maverick and Central Squares, in addition to the area’s emerging redevelopment.
In planning the building, great care was given to respecting the abutting properties including the recently approved Coppersmith Village and Boston East Site. As a result, the proposed building has been designed and scaled to compliment Liverpool Street, the area’s ongoing multi-family residential development, the surrounding commercial and retail uses, and the proximity to public transportation.
Most of the units would be studios, with six two-bedroom units mixed in. Three of the units would be designated affordable.
The proposal calls for 11 parking spaces.
