A Brookline developer is proposing to raze the old Corey Hill Nursing Home at 249 Corey Rd. and put up a 35-unit residential building on the Brighton side of the property and two single-family homes on the Brookline side.
Developer Jeffrey Feuerman, who has worked on several projects in Brighton, filed his formal plans with the BPDA yesterday. The multi-story building would also have a garage with 34 parking spaces, as well as a roof deck. Five of the units would be either rented or sold as affordable. In total, the building would have 4 studios, 13 one-bedroom units and 18 two-bedroom units.
Feuerman is promising "robust" landscaping:
The densely planted landscape along the sidewalks provides a multi-layered planting design that is naturalistic in its composition and achieves year-long interest that changes through the seasons. ... The trees will be 100% New England native species that over time will establish a continuous forest canopy, provide valuable habitat and create a sustainable and appropriate buffer.
In addition to the BPDA, the Zoning Board of Appeal will have to approve the Boston side of the project.
