Developer proposes 30 new apartments in South Boston

by Liz Hughes

Thirty new units of residential housing could be coming to 212 Old Colony Ave. in South Boston.

Developer Old C LLC filed a small project review application with the Boston Planning & Development Authority for 25 market-rate units and five affordable units. The 30 units will be a mix of studios, one-bedroom units and two-bedroom units. 

The project is being proposed under the city’s compact-living pilot program. Arthur Choo and Co. is the architect. 

The site, located between the Broadway T station and the Andrew Square T station, currently houses a commercial warehouse and is next to several other sites that have been or are in the process of redevelopment. 

In its filing, the developer said it plans to revitalize the area with the project, providing “quality affordable housing for families and young professionals,” while also offering area improvements. The building design, according to the filing, will also complement the other new projects nearby. 

The project is expected to cost $8 million and will include a 950-square-foot commercial space, more than 2,500 square feet of amenity space and parking for 30 bicycles. 

A public hearing on the project is scheduled for Oct. 19. The comment period for the proposal is open until Nov. 3.
