City Realty wants to replace a Meineke muffler shop and the Bagman on Faneuil Street in Brighton with a five-story, 41-condo building.
In a filing with the BPDA, the landlord and developer says five of the units would have three bedrooms, in the proposed $13.5-million building just off Market Street, behind the Scrubadub car wash.
The building would have 47 parking spaces in a "semi-automated parking system" with an additional four spaces for visitors or people with HP plates, as well as space for 52 bicycles.
The Proponent’s vision of the Project is to revitalize the neighborhood by replacing the existing commercial uses with a residential building that will add new housing units to the increasingly popular Brighton community. The Project Site is conveniently located off of Market Street, which historically has housed predominantly commercial uses, but has more recently evolved into a mixed-use corridor of Brighton with many larger residential housing projects. As part of the community benefits related to the Proposed Project, the existing and unsightly commercial building will be demolished, and will be replaced with a new energy efficient residential building.
In addition to the BPDA, the Zoning Board of Appeal will also have to approve the proposal.
