St. Francis House is teaming up with a developer of affordable housing for a proposed 19-story, 126-unit building on Lagrange Street.
In a recent filing with the BPDA, St. Francis House and the Planning Office for Urban Affairs say the units would range from "extremely low-income" to market rate and would "turn an underutilized parcel into an economically diverse residential '24/7' neighborhood that will serve a range of incomes and households."
The parcel abuts the former Young Men's Christian Union building on Boylston Street, for which St. Francis and the Planning Office already have city approval to turn into 46 apartments for low-income and formerly homeless people. It's next to the Kensington luxury tower and kitty corner from the Glass Slipper and Centerfolds strip clubs.
St. Francis House hopes to file more detailed plans for the project by the end of the month.
