An apartment building with 20 residences and 20 parking spaces has been proposed for a 10,437 square foot site at 400 Belgrade Avenue in West Roxbury. Each of the apartments will have two bedrooms and three of them will be set aside as affordable. The site was once home to a gas station, but it’s been closed for several decades, according to project filings with the Boston Redevelopment Authority.
Located at the intersection of Belgrade Avenue with Beech Street, the parcel is close to the West Roxbury Parkway and is within walking distance of several bus routes, a Roche Brothers grocery store, other shops and restaurants on Centre Street and two commuter rail stations.
The project will need zoning variances for height, floor area ratio and parking – a roof deck gives them plenty of open space per unit. The documents contain nothing about any potential remediation of the property.
