Even in overheated Boston, not every development project approved by the city gets built: A developer who won BRA approval for a 24-unit apartment building at 151 Liverpool St. in 2015 never started work and then sold the building to another developer - which is now back before the BRA with a proposal for a 36-unit building that might contain condos instead of apartments.
The plan approved by the BRA called for building new floors atop an existing building; new property owner City Point Liverpool LLC says that just wouldn't work, so instead it wants to tear the old building down, dig out a basement garage and add more units to pay for the added demolition and construction costs.
City Point's 55-story height is actually three feet lower than the original proposal, which had one fewer floor, because the lower floors in the new building will have shorter ceilings than in the current building.
The proposal calls for 36 parking spaces and a roof deck complete with a walking/running track.
