The proposed project consists of the renovation, expansion and mixed-use commercial conversion of an existing three-story brick and beam factory building and related demolition of a two-story former catering and office structure, at approximately 17,749 square-feet of land on three combined consolidated lot. Situated in South Boston’s Lower End, the rehabilitation of this existing brick and beam building formerly utilized as a rivet factory by the Standard Rivet Company, will feature a three-story addition, on top of the existing structure and a six story extension at the rear. The structural additions will be sufficiently set back from the front elevation of the existing building with new rear extension to mitigate building height impacts on the neighborhood, consistent with that of a recently-approved and abutting development at this shared dead-end section of Athens Street, between A Street and the South Boston Bypass/Haul Road.

The Proposed Project will also introduce a distinct new commercial office use, to an area which has experienced significant recent residential growth with little available new work or office space; along with vibrant ground level retail, a fitness club/gym, on-site parking and certain site and infrastructure upgrades. In particular, the resulting development will create five (5) levels of approximately 51,700 net square feet of commercial office space and approximately 12,000 net square feet of ground level retail and fitness/gym space on the lower levels, with an on-site garage containing 18 parking spaces at the center of the project site and accessed from its dead-end section on Athens Street.
