A developer who has proposed a new residential building on Washington Street, next to Exodus Bagels at Green Street, has submitted revised plans to the BPDA that show fewer overall units but more with "flex space" that could be used for home offices as well as additional outdoor patio space for residents who need a breath of fresh air.
Primary Development's proposal for 3326 Washington St. now shows a total of 43 residential units rather than the 47 he originally proposed. The company is also proposing 11 one-bedroom units with dens - the original plans showed no such units - as well as increasing the number of outdoor patios so that half of all the units will have one, compared to one third before. Some 23% of the units - or 10 - will still be marketed as affordable, the same as before.
To make room for the extra patios, the plans show the elimination of ground-floor retail space. To make way for the new units with dens, the number of studios has been reduced from 7 to 3 and the number of one-bedroom units with no den from 28 to 18. The number of two-bedroom units has been reduced from 12 to 11.
The ongoing challenges of COVID‐19 and its long‐term impacts on our cities and way of life have necessitated [the changes] We believe that these changes make for a better and more resilient building and contribution to the built environment of Boston.
The BPDA has set an Oct. 26 online public meeting to discuss the proposed changes.
