A developer has proposed replacing a vacant five-unit building at 81 Chestnut Hill Ave., at William Jackson Avenue, with a 15-unit residential building.
Two of the units in the building would be marketed as affordable; the building would have 17 parking spaces, according to the filing by a Newton developer to the BPDA.
The new four-story building would replace what was originally a two-family house built in 1969.
The building will be architecturally designed to compliment the neighborhood’s architectural character, landscape, and site, with vehicular and pedestrian access improvements to assure proper public safety and contextual appropriateness.
