City Realty is proposing a $13 million, 49-unit condominium development at 3193 Washington Street, according to a project notification form (PNF) filed with the Boston Redevelopment Authority (BRA).

“The project is intended to be transit oriented as the site lies within walking distance to both the Stonybrook and Green Street stations on the Orange Line, as well as several bus routes that bring

passengers into Boston proper,” states the PNF. “The project situated on Washington Street is within a short walk of Egleston Square and will be a great addition to its continued vitality.”

The project would demolish a one-story commercial building and replace it with a five-story, 12,992-square-foot building with 24 parking spaces and 58 bicycle spots. The 49 units would consist of 3 studios, 22 one-bedrooms, 10 one-bedrooms and den, 11 two-bedrooms, and 3 three-bedrooms. The project would have eight affordable-housing units, which is slightly more than what is required under the City’s affordable-housing policy. The ground floor would have about 1,000 square feet of retail/office space.

The project will need several variances, including for excessive height and not meeting the minimum parking requirement.
