The Boston Planning & Development Agency has approved two projects in Roslindale and one in Hyde Park that combined will bring 85 new housing units to the area.
Once complete, the 59-63 Belgrade Avenue project, located near Roslindale Village, will have 31 residential units, six of which will be income-restricted. The four-story residential building will include 15 one-bedroom units and 16 two-bedroom units, along with bike parking for each unit with a dedicated bike room, which can also accommodate visitor bike parking. Additionally, the project’s developers will contribute $8,525 to Boston’s Bluebikes system. Area improvements will include new crosswalks, sidewalk and curb extensions, according to the filing.
Construction of a four-story building at 635 Hyde Park Avenue will bring both housing and retail space to the area. The 27 rental units, five of which will be income-restricted, will include nine two-bedroom units (with three located on each floor) and 18 one-bedroom units. Retail space will be on the ground floor. Area improvements include new sidewalks and street trees for nearby Canterbury Street and Hyde Park Avenue. The project will also contribute $7,425 to the city’s Bluebikes program.
The BPDA also approved a project at 7 Dana Avenue in Hyde Park. That project will bring 27 rental units, five of which will be income-restricted. The four-story building will house 18 one-bedroom and nine two-bedroom units, with a first-floor residential lobby. The project includes parking for 34 bicycles, as well as a $7,425 contribution to the city’s Bluebikes system. This project, according to the filing, will also improve access to the nearby Hyde Park Commuter Rail Station with both sidewalk improvements and pedestrian access.
