The BRA yesterday approved John Drew's plans for a 23-story addition to his Waterside Place project on Congress Street, at World Trade Center Avenue.
The $157-million building will include 307 apartments - 62 of them tiny "innovation units" aimed at people with a bit less money and a lot less stuff than the average waterfront resident. The building will also have 15 affordable apartment renting for between $1,065 and about $1,600 per month. That's fewer than called for by the city's affordable-housing requirements; Drew is making up the difference by giving $5.7 million to the BRA for affordable units elsewhere.
