A developer has filed plans to replace the old City Sports at 1035 Commonwealth Ave. in Allston with a six-story, 55-unit residential building with retail space on the ground floor.
In a filing with the BPDA, developers BGI Homes of Brighton and D2 Development of Roxbury say the $15-million project would have units ranging from studios to three bedrooms. The plans do not specify whether the units would be rented as apartments or sold as condos. Seven of the units would be offered as affordable.
The building, right on the B Line and the 57 bus route, would have no parking spaces for residents but two for the retail space. The filing notes that Fenway Park is a 29-minute walk away. Residents would have easier access to Thai food - at Brown Sugar next door.
The developer expect the units "will be very attractive to those seeking an active neighborhood within the urban context of Boston."
City Sports closed in 2015.
