A West Roxbury developer wants to replace a nondescript office building off Soldiers Field Road inbound at the ramp up to Brighton with a six-story, 106-unit apartment building.
The Ballas Group's proposal is the latest development proposal for a formerly sleepy bit of Brighton just across the Charles from Watertown. It would go next to the construction site where another developer has started tearing down another office building for a 211-unit apartment building at 1550 Soldiers Field Rd.:
Also nearby: A nearly completed apartment building where the Black & Decker repair center used to be.
In a letter of intent filed with the BPDA this week, the Ballas Group says its new building would have 60 parking spaces "a short walk" from the Boston Landing commuter-rail station, as well as "design-forward" archictecture and "robust open space."
The letter signals that the developer hopes to shortly file more detailed plans for consideration by the BPDA.
