Developer Joey Arcari has filed plans with the BPDA to replace one of the city's more unusually named convenience stores, at Washington and River streets in Lower Mills, with a 24-unit residential building with 18 parking spaces.
Arcari's proposal for what is now the Metamorphosis convenience store, also calls for 1,600 square feet of ground-floor retail space, in the new building, which would awaken between the Star Market on River Street and Spukies N Pizza on Washington Street.
The units would be split between one bedroom and two bedrooms.
Three of the units would be rented or sold as affordable; the proposal does not specify if the units will be rented as apartments or sold as condos.
According to the filing for the "transit oriented" project:
The building is sited as an architectural extension of the Baker Lofts, taking design cues from the distinctive historic mill building context. Timeless materials, rich masonry detailing, and contextual proportions ground it within the site.
