Cruz Development Corp. is proposing a two-building complex that would include 150 apartments, space for a new NAACP headquarters and a restaurant on Dudley Street, between the B-2 police station and the BPL branch.
In a letter of intent filed with the BPDA, the Roxbury developer says it would build a six-story building with 50 affordable apartments - aimed at people making between 30 and 50% of the Boston area median income and an eight-story building with 100 condos, half market rate and half sold to people making between 60% and 80% of the area median income. The NAACP would get its office rent free for ten years, Cruz says.
Cruz is also proposing a 245-space garage for the 135 Dudley St. project, with 100 of those spaces available to the general public.
The project would sit on what is now city-owned land to which Cruz won development rights in July, as part of a city effort to put more housing and commercial space on vacant lots in Dudley Square.
In addition to the BPDA, the project will also require the approval of the Zoning Board of Appeal.
