Meeting on ‘Lucky Strike’ site next week
A proposal to build 22 units at the site of a former Fields Corner bowling alley will get a public airing next Wednesday, Jan. 15. The Boston Redevelopment Authority, which is reviewing the project, is holding the meeting, scheduled to start at 6:30 p.m. at Kit Clark Senior Services at 1500 Dorchester Ave.
Known as the “Lucky Strike Residency Project” after the former bowling alley, the three-story building will be located at 281-289 Adams St. Along with the housing units, the proposal includes four commercial spaces and off-street parking for 14 vehicles. The units include 2 studios, 12 one-bedrooms, and 8 two-bedrooms.
“The exterior of the new structure will be a combination of brick, large glass windows and clapboard and decorative design reveal elements at the top of the structure,” the company behind the proposal, Lucky Strike Development, LLC, said in documents submitted to the BRA. “The first floor front and its both sides building façade will be brick with large glass windows to provide the front with a main street feeling.” There are also plans for a small open green garden.
