A developer has proposed replacing a former nursing home on Aspinwall Road in Dorchester's Codman Square with a four-story, 34-unit condo building that would have 29 parking spaces in an underground garage.
The proposed building would replace the old Nelson Manor Nursing Home at 3 Aspinwall, just off Washington Street, on land that is currently zoned for three-family homes no more than 2 1/2 stories tall, under plans submitted by Solmon Chowdhury - who is also known for his Shanti restaurants in Dorchester and Roslindale
The building would house three studios, 16 one-bedroom units and 15 two-bedroom units. Four units would be sold as affordable.
In his filing, Chowdhury says the building would mean a more pedestrian-friendly street through a new sidewalk and landscaping.
In addition to the BPDA, the zoning board would also have to approve variances for the project.
