City Realty proposes Washington St. project

City Realty has proposed a $14.6 million mixed-use development for 3371-3375 Washington St. and 197-201 Green St., according to documents filed with the Boston Planning and Development Agency.

The site borders Washington and Green streets and Union Avenue in the rear. Located at the site currently are an auto shop, ironworks shop, restaurant, and single-family dwelling. These buildings will be demolished to make room for the proposed project, which will include two five-story residential market-rate buildings with ground floor commercial space.

The total development will be 63,785 square feet, and will include 58 residential units and two commercial spaces. One building at 3371-3375 Washington St. will be comprised of 2 studio units, 19 one-bedroom units, and 12 two-bedroom units. The second building’s address is technically 197-201 Green St., and will include 6 one-bedroom units, 4 two-bedroom units, and 15 three-bedroom units. Many of the units will have decks as a means to provide outdoor space, a zoning requirement.

There will be 33 parking spaces, all of which will be interior and spread across both buildings.

City Realty seeks zoning relief related to the size, and related to change of use of the land and the existing structures.

City Realty hopes to commence construction in the summer or fall of 2017, and hope to complete the project by fall or winter of 2018.

Walter Craven had previously tried to develop the site, but faced community criticism on several different proposals.
