City Realty of Brookline has filed plans with the BPDA for a 49-unit apartment building between Cummins and American Legion highways, next to the Stop & Shop and just a short walk from the Flaming Grill & Buffet at the other end of the strip mall.
The developer is proposing six affordable units and 61 parking spaces, with an entrance on Cummins Highway.
City Realty says the building is near several bus lines with ready access to T stops in Roslindale, Hyde Park and Mattapan - as well as near "the up and coming Roslindale Village, which will offer many neighborhood shops, restaurants and amenities to service the new residents of the development."
The vision of the Project is to revitalize the neighborhood by replacing the existing vacant lot with a residential building that will add new housing units to the increasingly popular Hyde Park and Roslindale communities.
The company hopes to begin construction of the $11.8 million building this summer, with occupancy by fall, 2021.
