The BPDA board yesterday approved plans by Stop & Shop to transform its 10.6-acre parcel on Everett Street in Allston into an 868-unit complex with apartments, condos and a replacement for the supermarket that now sits there.
The board rejected requests from residents to delay a vote to allow for more public discussion of the proposal. In what could be one of his last public statements, outgoing City Councilor Mark Ciommo said it was time to build.
Part of the proposal calls for a $4-million contribution to the Allston Brighton Homeowner Fund, which is aimed at helping residents stay in the neighborhood even as it is transformed into a sea of market-rate and luxury units. Some 148 of the new units in the complex will be rented or sold as affordable.
The proposal also calls for office space, a restaurant and a 10,000-square-foot "community art space."
