Belgrade Crossing:



1/4 mile away. Belgrade Place.


Aforementioned multi-family dwellings. Bad pics, but you get the idea.

Eh, it's West Roxbury. Who cares? It might as well be Needham.

Re: West Roxbury Developments

The first one is modular, and was literally just a foundation a week ago. The second is following more traditional methods, and actually is making decent progress. The more traditional one is actually country be pretty nice in my opinion.

Jamaica Plain developer has proposed a 17-unit condominium project at 1789 Centre St. in West Roxbury, the site of the former West Roxbury Motors site, according to documentation filed with the Boston Redevelopment Authority.

The developer and project manager is Gary Martell Real Estate Equity Consulting, with Brookline-based RF Schmidt Architect LLC serving as project architect. The site’s owner is Acre Development Corp. of Andover.

The 11,834-square-foot lot is bounded by Centre and Willow streets.

“Presently, the parcel containst the former used car business, known as West Roxbury Motors ... which is presently vacant, and considered an eyesore to the community,” the project development team wrote in a letter to the BRA. “Redevelopment of the site will enhance the street frontage of both Centre and Willow Streets, adding energy and vitality.”

Re: West Roxbury Developments

Well Centre St is West Roxbury's main retail drag, so of course this will be filled with ground floor retail, right? Right?



Oh.

To be fair, that could be retail on the ground floor, maybe.

I'll spare everyone's eyes by not quoting the VFW rendering... I think that pretty much sums up how I feel about it.

Re: West Roxbury Developments

Allandale Residences Approved

An architecturally interesting residential project was just approved for Allandale Street at this month's BRA meeting. Here's a rendering:



From the Developer Website:

Quote:
What will be Boston's first Net Zero neighborhood and first LEED Platinum neighborhood—and New England’s first Fortified Construction residential project—is nestled on 2 acres with direct access to Allandale Woods.

Units will range in size from 1,600 to 2,800 square feet. These 2- and 3-bedroom, 2+ bath townhomes will have exquisite interior finishes and ample outdoor space.
From the Boston Redevlopment Authority:

Quote:
Proposed 20 townhomes at 44,481 GSF in West Roxbury near the Jamaica Plain and Brookline borders. 40 parking spaces proposed.

LOI for Willet St. Extension.

Not often you see Boston gain a whole new street of single family homes. Will be replacing an industrial property.

Re: West Roxbury Developments

LOI for apartments at VFW Parkway and Dedham St. Appears to replace both the vacant parcels and the trailer park adjacent to Prime Toyota.
