A developer is signalling its intent to replace "a series of non-descript automobile repair structures," a parking lot and a small house on Bremen Street, between Brooks and Putnam streets in East Boston, with a six-story, 165-unit residential building.
In a letter of intent filed with the BPDA this week, Transom Real Estate, based in the South End, says it hopes to combine nine separate lots on that stretch for its "vibrant mixed-use development," which would include retail space on the first floor.
The letter does not specify how many parking spaces a proposed underground garage would have, but says that by combining all the lots, the project would reduce the current number of curb cuts and allow for 135 feet of new on-street parking.
Over the past couple of years, developers have been gobbling up East Boston's auto-body and repair garages at a fast rate to tear them down and put up residential buildings.
