Developer Peter Davos of West Roxbury is proposing 70 apartments and 18 townhouse condos behind the 80-unit Oak Row apartment building he recently finished on VFW Parkway next to the Home Depot lot.
Davos expects to file detailed plans soon with the BPDA for the 1.4-acre proposal, but in a letter of intent filed this week, he said he will use four lots on either side of Gardner Street - which runs between the Home Depot parking lot and Charles Park Road. The lots currently house buildings used by a plastics company and a contractor, as well as "non-descript residential structures."
The apartments would be built in a "mid-rise" building, the letter says. The condos would all have three bedrooms. Davos is proposing 70 parking spaces for the apartments and a driveway and garage for each of the condos.
In addition to the Oak Row complex and this proposal, another developer has proposed a 258-unit apartment complex down in the strip-mall section of VFW Parkway, next to Prime Motors and in front of the Boston Trailer Park.
