Urban Edge files Egleston housing plans

Urban Edge, a community development corporation located in Jackson Square, recently filed plans for its 49-unit affordable housing project in Egleston Square, according to documents filed with the Boston Redevelopment Authority.

The Walker Park Apartments at 67 and 80 Walnut Park are named for longtime local resident and community organizer Delphine Walker.

The 49 units would be in two different buildings that would replace two vacant lots and a blighted building on a site adjacent to the Egleston Square Branch Library. One building would be at 80 Walnut Park. The building would encompass 18,764 square feet, have 17 units and 12 parking spaces. The second building would be located at 67 Walnut Park and have 32 units in a 31,160-square-foot structure with 22 parking spaces.

The 67 Walnut Park property currently has a decaying house on it. The house was deemed not historically significant by the Boston Landmarks Commission, according to the project filing.

The project will require Boston Redevelopment Authority review before any construction can happen.
