Project Description
The proposed project is a renovation of the existing YW Boston building at 140 Clarendon Street in the Back Bay neighborhood. Beacon Communities proposes a rehabilitation of approximately 50,000 square feet of existing hotel and residential uses into affordable housing units, health and wellness amenities, and offices for building management staff which will be operated in partnership with the Pine Street Inn. Ultimately, the building will contain approximately 210 apartments (an increase of 92 housing units) all of which will be income-restricted to households with incomes at or below 60% of the Area Median Income. The existing commercial uses on the ground floor including the Lyric Stage of Boston theatre and the Snowden International School will remain unchanged. No exterior changes to the historic building are proposed.
