South Boston development would replace industrial building on West Fifth

54 units total

Another week, another South Boston development proposal.

This time it’s Milton-based Trinity Green Development’s plan to demolish the single-story industrial building at 20 West Fifth Street and replace it with a 54-unit apartment complex with a 41-space garage.

Trinity Green already owns the building, which has housed a conveyor-belt, motors, and drives concern since 1970. Per the Herald’s Donna Goodison, that company plans to relocate so Trinity Green can demolish the building.

Plans are still under review, but what’s really striking about the proposal is the relatively modest parking-to-unit ratio—not even one-to-one in this case.

That stands in stark contrast to a proposal floated last week for the Gulf gas station at 87-93 West Broadway: 64 parking spaces for 56 units near the Red Line’s Broadway stop.
