Samuels & Associates today told the BPDA it will soon file plans for a seven-story, 270-unit residential building at 180 Western Ave., where Stone Hearth Pizza used to be, and across the street from the developer's Continuum apartment building, which includes a Trader Joe's.
The proposed building would also have first-floor retail and restaurant space, which Samuels says will be a boon in the new neighborhood that Harvard, which owns much of the surrounding land, hopes to turn the once quiet Barry's Corner into.
Would the new 200,000-square-foot building be "transit oriented" and "transformative?" Of course.
