The Boston Planning & Development Agency has signed off on the long-planned conversion of East Boston’s old Hodge Boiler Works at 99 Summer Street into a complex with 119 condos.
Plans from developer the Davis Companies also include 7,200 square feet of ground-floor work-share space that will be publicly accessible and face the waterfront. There will be, too, a 5,045-square-foot elevated courtyard for residents only.
Seven of the project’s condos will be designated as affordable, and there will be voluminous amounts of bike storage: 119 interior spaces and 28 exterior ones open to the general public. (As for car parking, there will be 83 underground spaces available to residents.)
The public bike parking is part and parcel of the project’s inclusion of a new 240-foot-long section of Boston’s Harborwalk. That run will essentially fill in a missing link between Carlton Wharf and Lo Presti Park.
