Barlett Square, a 13-unit condo building with three ground-floor retail units, will be completed by early next year, Chris DeSisto of Maple Hurst Builders told the Gazette last week.
. The new development is on Green Street between Amory Street and Brookside Avenue.
“We are hoping to be done by year’s end. It will probably be more like mid-winter,” DeSisto said
Two of the 13 residential units are already under agreement, DeSisto told the Gazette, and Maple Hurst has not even started marketing them.
“They were JP people who saw the construction” and got in touch, DeSisto said. He said the remaining units will be marketed by Coldwell Banker.
There has also been interest in the retail units, DeSisto said. “We have had six viable businesses” express interest, he said, including a small grocer and a sandwich shop. The building design includes an outdoor patio on the corner of Green and Amory streets and DeSisto said he hopes the adjacent corner retail space will be a café.
“As we have stated to the community, we are not interested in putting in a Subway [sandwich shop] or a mobile phone store” or offices, DeSisto said. “Hopefully we can get some good local retail businesses in there.”
The Bartlett Square name harkens back to the late 1800s, when it was the name of a thriving business district in the area.
The residential units will be a mix of one-, two- and three-bedroom units. Amenities will include heated, below-grade parking, solar-heated hot water, an elevator; and close proximity to the Green Street Orange Line T Station.
