Grocery concern Stop & Shop wants to build up to 1,010 housing units on an 11-acre site adjacent to the ginormous Boston Landing complex in the Brighton-Allston borderlands.
According to preliminary plans filed with the city, Stop & Shop would start with a 360-unit residential building and a new supermarket at 60 Everett Street, to replace one already there.
A further 650 units, plus retail, parking, and (maybe) office space would then be added later on.
The company also wants to construct a street and a bikeway through the project, which would instantly become one of the single, biggest housing developments in Boston.
Nothing’s finalized yet, nor does Stop & Shop have a timeline for development. But, as the Globe’s Tim Logan points out, the project would join the already partially opened Boston Landing in a busy, busy part of Allston-Brighton.
Recall that that 15.2-acre complex is also slated to include residences, never mind practice facilities for the Celtics and the Bruins. It already hosts the headquarters of New Balance, which is co-developing Boston Landing.
