Developers have filed plans for a development on Braintree Street in Allston that would include a 12-story office/R&D building and a 6-story, 97-unit residential building in which at least 20% - but possibly up to 60% - of the units would be rented or sold as affordable.
Developers David Bracken and Aaron and Michael Blank's plans for the 1.8-acre site at Everett Street, filed this week with the BPDA, are just the latest in a series of projects that are transforming the corridor along the turnpike in Allston and Brighton, spurred by the New Balance complex and the Boston Landing commuter-rail station.
In their filing, the developers say they will try to increase the number of affordable units in the complex above 20% through a combination of state and city funding. But even at 20%, which would be roughly 20 units, the project would be well above the city requirement of 13% affordable units in new developments.
The proposal calls for 212 parking spaces for the commercial building, which would include ground-floor retail and restaurant space, but just 7 for the residential building - right under the Everett Street Bridge from the Boston Landing station and near several bus routes, as well as about 3/4 of a mile from the Green Line.
The developers hope to begin 30 months of construction in 2022.
