A Waltham developer has filed plans for its two-building, 258-unit apartment development along VFW Parkway, between the Boston Trailer Park and Prime Motors.
Lincoln Property Co. says it will turn the 4.6-acre site, which now consists of an abandoned parking lot and a lot of scrub, into a new community just up from the Dedham line on the southbound side of the parkway. The buildings' design will bring "a strong urban edge" to the roadway, the company says.
Both buildings would be four stories if approved by the BPDA. One of the buildings would wrap around a parking garage with room for 387 parking spaces.
Lincoln says it will not need any zoning approval because the proposed project is less dense and shorter than the maximum allowed and the number of parking spaces matches that called for in the zoning code for a residential project there. It also has more open space than required - including an outdoor pool for residents.
Lincoln hopes to begin 22 months of construction in mid-2019.
