One of the more sizable developments in Roslindale just crested a major milestone: Tenants have begun moving into the 43 1- and 2-BR apartments constructed on a former funeral-home site near the old Roslindale Square MBTA power substation. Construction on what's been dubbed Parkside on Adams started back in late 2014, and the finished product includes 38 parking spaces as well as a "green" roof deck. As for the substation itself, it, too, is due for a major makeover, one that is preceding apace after a gas-line delay.
"Some infrastructure work has been completed inside the [substation]," according to Historic Boston Inc., and design and development plans for a restaurant on the building's redone main level have been underway, too. As for the lower level, that's getting a Craft Beer Cellar (yay!). Office space and other, unannounced retail will comprise the rest of the substation. Major exterior work is slated for the spring, including removal of the bricked-in and plywood-covered windows. As for rents in the already-opened Parkside on Adams, available 1-BRs start at $2,125 and 2-BRs at $2,600. Parking is an extra $125 a month.
