Charlestown developer Gray MacLetchie is proposing to replace a 1960s two-story building at 610 Rutherford Ave. with a five-story, 22-unit condo building with 19 parking spaces.
The proposed $5.5-million building would be wrapped by a two-building, 171-unit apartment complex now under construction.
MacLetchie's proposal calls for a mix of unit sizes, including two three-bedroom units, as well as a common roof deck and kitchen area.
The 22 residential condominium units will provide added vitality to the neighborhood with home ownership option. The new 170 unit project currently under construction adjacent to the property are rental units. The parking is located on site with the all of the spaces under the proposed building. The project site will be developed with appropriate design and site improvements to provide proper public safety and functionality. The building has been designed responding to a more commercial level of detail versus a residential “gabled” structure. We designed the building to fit within the context of the neighboring industrial designed buildings.
MacLetchie hopes to begin 14 months of construction this November.
