An Everett developer has proposed adding four floors to an existing three-story building at 601 Newbury St. in the Fenway and turning it into a building with 36 micro apartments and 49 "executive suites" - longish term, temporary housing for professionals on assignment in Boston or out-of-towners on extended visits to the city.
Thibeault Development says its $10.2-million project, near where Newbury Street meets Brookline Avenue, overlooking the turnpike, would not only revive what is now an empty building but add housing to the Kenmore Square area. No parking is proposed, given its location near the Kenmore Square T stop.
Thibeault hopes to being construction this spring, with rooms ready for occupancy by fall, 2022.
