Project Proponent: The Community Builders, Inc.
Project Description: The proposal calls for the redevelopment
of the properties located at 355 and 400 Western Avenue and 1256
and 1266 Soldiers Field Road in Brighton (the ?Site?). The Site is
comprised of two locations; the Brighton Mills Site, an approximately
6.2 acre parcel which is currently the site of a parking lot associated
with the K-Mart building; and the Telford Street site, an approximately
0.7 acre parcel located across Western Avenue which currently houses
three (3) small structures. The Proposed Project will entail the
relocation and reconstruction of the 213-unit Charlesview Apartment
Complex (?Charlesview?) from its current location near the corner
of Western Avenue and North Harvard Street to the Site which lies
approximately one half mile to the west. In addition to replacing
all 213 low-income units from the current Charlesview, the project
proposes to create 187 new affordable and market rate units for
a total of 400 units of mixed income housing with supporting retail
and community space. Parking for both sites is contemplated to consist
of sufficient underground parking structures with attendant service
parking and currently provides over 450 spaces in the aggregate.
