The Mount Vernon Co., the developer behind Allston's Green District among other projects, just released more details re: its proposal at the intersection of Western Avenue, Leo M. Birmingham Parkway and Waverly and Mackin streets in go-go Brighton. Among those details is a first-ever rendering of the would-be six-story complex, which shows a kind of starkly bold and slowly curving design by architect Prellwitz Chilinski Associates. The building will surely pop for that area, though our first thought was "Ikea."
The development at 580 Western Avenue is set to include 132 studio, 1-BR and 2-BR apartments as well as three small retail stores on the ground level. It would also have 108 parking spaces and covered storage for 132 bikes, per Donna Goodison at the Herald. The project involves knocking down four existing buildings at the intersection; and also involves combining four residential and commercial parcels. Big stuff in a neighborhood seeing a lot of it. Stay tuned.
