Tiny Bay Village could get big apartment tower

Proposal calls for 19 floors

Boston’s Bay Village could get a 19-story, 131-unit apartment building at Stuart and Church streets, according to plans that developers Transom Real Estate and Wheelock Capital recently put forward.

The 146,000-square-foot building would include studios, 1-BRs, 2-BRs, and 3-BRs as well as 3,000 square feet of ground-floor retail. The development would also come with 50 parking spaces.

Such scope would make the project positively huge by Bay Village standards (the neighborhood is the smallest official one in Boston). But 19 floors would not necessarily be that out-of-scale for the area. There are nearby addresses with more than 10 floors, for instance.

The plans are still tentative and previous proposals for the site, including one residential one, fell through after initial city approvals last decade. Stay tuned.
