CAD Builders of Canton this week filed plans for a 21-unit condo building to replace the former Peoples Federal Savings Bank bunker and the old Gilmore place on Centre Street.
Because this is West Roxbury, the proposal calls for 33 parking spaces, even though the company notes the building is on three bus lines and a short walk to the Highland stop on the Needham Line.
CAD also put up the condo building on Centre Street at Willow Street, across from the Starbucks and Roche Bros.
In 2019, CAD won approval to create that rarest of Boston projects - a subdivision, with 29 single-family houses, on the other side of West Roxbury.
Unusually for a project of this size, the proposed building will not require any zoning variances - which means all of the units can be sold at market rate.
The proposal for the two lots on Centre Street at Park Street also calls for ground-floor commercial space.

The facade design and scale reflect the residential nature of the building through the development of window patterns and the materials used to clad the building. The mass of the building is broken down to a human-scale through plane-changes, the articulation of bays and through the use of architectural elements, such as cornices and parapets which will create variations in the way the building meets the sky.
