Developer files plan for Stonybrook dev.

A developer, Helms Investments LLC, has filed plans with the Boston Planning and Development Agency (BPDA) for a residential development at 50 Stedman St. in the Stonybrook neighborhood.

The BPDA will host a community meeting for the project at 3484 Washington St. on Oct. 29, starting at 6 p.m.

The project will involve demolishing an existing a one-story commercial structure at the property and transforming the site into a three-story, 24,000-square-foot building with 21 residential units and a parking garage below for 21 spaces. The project will have 6 one-bedroom units and 15 two-bedroom units. Four units, or 19 percent of the total units, will be marked as affordable. The one-bedrooms will be about 730 square feet, while the two-bedrooms will be about 1,100 square feet.

The project will need several variations, including insufficient off-street parking, forbidden use, and for dimensional regulations.

“In what will be hopefully a gateway project for the Stedman Street neighborhood, the building has been designed and modified with input from neighbors and residents of the surrounding community through community outreach and community meetings. In addition, the proponent has engaged in discussions with the local elected delegation and has had discussions with BPDA staff. The goal of engaging in an early community process and dialogue was to ensure that the proposed development reflects the desires of the immediate community,” wrote Lucio Trabucco, an architect for the project, in the filing to the BPDA.
