Project Description
The proposed project sits on two lots with a combined area of 5,330 square feet. The site is located at 7 Elmwood Street and 291 Roxbury Street. The project includes the construction of a seven-story building containing 40 residential units, 3,240 sf of commercial space, and 2,290 square feet of shared tenant amenities, including a gym, shared offices, lounges, and a roof deck. Residents and retail/commercial visitors would enter on Elmwood street. The project will create seven (7) affordable units at 70%–100% AMI and is very close to the Roxbury Crossing MBTA orange line stop. The project has been designed under the guidelines of the Boston Compact Living Pilot Program, focusing on smaller units, more shared amenities, no parking, and ample bike storage. The project also includes improvements to the sidewalk and public realm. These public realm improvements are intended to increase outdoor seating and visitor bike storage; as well as make the nearby road crossings safer for tenants, neighbors, and the Roxbury Crossing Community College Community.
