Scape, a British company whose contractors are now busy erecting a 477-unit apartment on Boylston Street, where Machine and Ramrod used to be, says it will soon file plans for a 400-unit residential building at 2 Charlesgate West - currently home to a a nondescript office building at the corner of Ipswich, where the previous owner once proposed a 29-story luxury tower fought by everybody from nearby residents to the Red Sox.
In a letter of intent filed with the BPDA this week, Scape did not say how many stories it would propose for its 285,000-square-foot Charlesgate building, which it says will also include "activated ground-floor retail and below-grade parking." The Boylston Street building will be 15 stories when completed.
Also not stated is whether the company still plans to offer all the units in the Charlesgate building as affordable.
When Scape proposed its Boylston Street building, it said it would do that to meet its overall requirements for inclusion of affordable units in the Fenway when it was done with the two buildings and a third planned for Audubon Circle. However, at the time, Scape also said the Charlesgate building would have roughly 220 units.
The company says it expects to file detailed plans within 60 days.
