The BRA Board approved the Ridgecrest Village Apartments project in West Roxbury, which will bring 48 new rental units online. The project is located on a vacant parcel of land associated with the existing Ridgecrest Green Apartment complex on Edgemere Road. The existing complex is comprised of seven two-and-a-half story buildings with 144 units. The new project will consist of the 48 units of housing comprised of one and two bedroom apartments in a three-story building.

As part of the project, the development team has agreed to a number of streetscape beautification projects associated with the existing complex as well as the surrounding Beethoven and Washington Street neighborhoods. The developer has also agreed to make a contribution of $5000 to the Ohrenberger Community Center located at 175 West Boundary Road in West Roxbury.

The development team consists of Chestnut Hill Realty as the owner/developer; Lowe Associates as the project architect; Nixon Peabody as legal counsel; and William A. Berry & Son, Inc. as construction managers. The $12 million project will generate approximately 50 construction jobs. It is anticipated that construction will commence in spring 2011 and be completed in spring 2012.
