BRA board approves Bartlett II

The Boston Redevelopment Authority board approved during its Nov. 10 meeting the Bartlett II mixed-use development at 450-456 Amory St., according to a press release.

The project had been pulled from last month’s board meeting so the developer, Chris DeSisto, could address some concerns from the community.

The four-story development is slated to have 3 three-bedroom units, 9 two-bedroom units and 3 one-bedroom units. Two of the units will be affordable, consistent with the City’s affordable-housing policy.

The $3.5 million development will be about 24,000 square feet, including 5,700 square feet of retail that will be divided into two spaces. DeSisto plans to have a restaurant in one of the spaces.

Construction is expected to begin in the spring.

The proposal is similar to the “Bartlett Square” building with its popular cafe at 154 Green St., created by DeSisto’s Mission Hill-based Maple Hurst Builders.
