S. HUNTINGTON AVE.—The Impact Advisory Group (IAG) for an apartment building project at 105A S. Huntington Ave. is currently being assembled by the Boston Redevelopment Authority (BRA).

An IAG is a city-appointed group of residents and other stakeholders that advise the city on potential impacts of building projects.

The project would build 190 to 200 luxury units. Developer Anthony Nader has filed a Letter of Intent, a preliminary document, with the BRA.

“We’re finalizing the availability list” for the IAG, BRA spokesperson Melina Schuler told the Gazette.

She added that it is likely that there will be overlap between this IAG and the IAG for another nearby apartment project at 161 S. Huntington Ave., though they will remain separate bodies.

No meetings for the IAG have been scheduled yet, Schuler said.

The multi-building development would include townhouses and apartment buildings of one-, two- and three-bedroom, high-end units targeted at graduate students and families. The project would also include ground-floor retail space.

Cedar Valley Development, managed by Nader, purchased the 1.1-acre parcel at 105A S. Huntington Ave. from the state in 2005, amid controversy. The site had been used by North American Indian Center of Boston (NAICOB) since the 1970s.
