The owners of a decades-old South Boston electric contracting firm has filed plans for a four-story, 25-unit residential building on East 3rd St., between O and P streets - with parking spaces for 37 cars.
Richard and Joy Cox of Quincy, who own Thomas W. Cox Electrical Co., want to combine three lots they own for construction of the $8.5-million building at 765 East 3rd St.
All but one of the units would have two bedrooms; the remaining unit would have one. Of the 25 units - the filing does not specify if they would be apartments or condos - 3 would be marketed as affordable.
The 37 proposed parking spaces in an underground garage is two more than would be required by the lot's zoning - unusual these days when developers outside of leafier neighborhoods such as West Roxbury and Hyde Park typically propose far fewer parking spaces than required by zoning.
The Coxes hope to begin construction in early 2020, with completion targeted for the fall of 2021.
