Velkor Realty Trust has proposed a 44-unit residential complex on Bennington St. in East Boston’s Orient Heights neighborhood; the complex will span 49,000 square feet.
The project’s architect is Clinton Design Architects of Holliston, and Brian J. Hosker is listed as the trustee of Velkor Realty Trust. Due to a plan to include 44 below-grade parking spaces in the design, some existing buildings will need to be demolished. Velkor Realty Trust addressed this issue in its project notification form.
“The existing auto repair and multifamily home have no historic or architectural significance to the surrounding neighborhood,” Velkor stated. “Its presence and appearance actually detracts from the neighborhood.”
