Developer Mark Kennedy filed plans with the BPDA on Monday for a five-story, 28-unit residential building with ground-floor retail space at 1813 Dorchester Ave., across from Edwin Street, a few blocks north of the Ashmont T stop - the first new development proposal along the street since the start of the pandemic.
In his filing, Kennedy writes: "The project will not include accessory off-street parking owing to its close proximity to public transportation. Rather, the ground floor will contain two separate retail units, a gym or similar amenity space for residents, with an outdoor patio, a spacious bicycle storage room ..."
The building would replace the warehouse that now sits on the site.
It would have 19 two-bedroom and apartments and 9 one-bedroom units. Four of the units would be rented as affordable.
Kennedy hopes to begin construction of his proposed $8.5-million building in late 2021, with occupancy in late 2022.
