The Boston Redevelopment Authority today approved plans for a 145-unit building on the Riverway in which most units will be aimed at the sort of people who could not possibly afford the sorts of apartments being built in the rest of the city.
The proposed 11-story building will be next to a Brigham and Women's Hospital building now under construction on the Riverway at Fenwood Road - and the hospital is a partner in the project, for which it is donating the land, along with the Roxbury Tenants of Harvard, a non-profit group that currently maintains some 1,000 apartments in the Longwood/Mission Hill area.
