A developer wants to plunk dozens of apartments, retail and Boston's newest dog run on two Charlestown sites a stone's throw from both Somerville's mighty Assembly Row and the Orange Line's Sullivan Square stop.
The Graphic Arts Finishers building at 32 Cambridge Street would be rejiggered for 52 apartments as well as 2,500 square feet of ground-floor retail, according to The Herald. The one-story building at 572 Rutherford Avenue would be knocked down and replaced with a four-story one for 119 apartments. The buildings would then be connected; and the development would include a courtyard, that dog run and, of course, other amenities for tenants.
And, despite the proximity to the T, more than 100 parking spots are currently planned. It's all very preliminary so far—the plans were only recently filed with the Boston Redevelopment Authority and there are no renderings yet—but these apartments would certainly be coming along at an auspicious time for that area. We'll see what happens.
