Plans for affordable apartments in Egleston Square approved - again

Egleston Square proposal

Architect's rendering.

The Board of Appeal today approved the Elizabeth Stone House's proposal for a 32-unit apartment building at 3012 Washington St., on the Roxbury side of Egleston Square, in which all the units would be rented as affordable.

This is the second official go-round for the proposal, which has been in the works since 2009, and which was originally approved as a 27-unit building. An attorney for the non-profit group said the extra five units would make it easier to obtain financing for the four-story building, which would also house Elizabeth Stone offices and a daycare.

The building has the same dimensions as before; the extra units would be added by reducing the size of the other units.

The building will have spaces for 20 cars.
