Developer proposes six-story apartment building on Western Avenue in Brighton

Rendering of proposed 470 Western Ave.

Rendering by R&B Design.

A Newton developer has proposed replacing a two-family house and parking lot at 470 Western Ave. in Brighton with a six-story, 39-unit apartment building.

Plans submitted yesterday by Peter Zagorianakos of Triad Alpha Partners include 14 parking spaces in a garage with a car stacking system and an all-electric building with no gas hookups and solar panels on the roof, all in a building designed to be "reminiscent" of brick row houses.

Five of the units would have three bedrooms. Seven of the units would be rented as affordable.

That wasn't previously residential, for the most part.

Edit: then I looked up the address and see is replacing residential. Now it's time to wipe and go to work. Have a wonderful day everyone, and watch out for dudes selling speakers out of a van.

Why is this one developer going with six stories when the other taller buildings on the street are five stories?

I can almost guarantee you that those 5 three bedroom apartments are going to be on the sixth floor and listed at market rate.

No where in this architectural rendering do I see a garage entrance shown. Even weirder what happened to the two family house next to the one they plan to tear down: It's shown as a four story office type building there?

There's a car elevator.

6 stories is fine, if about 2 stories too short.
