Developer Steven Ballas of West Roxbury has filed plans with the BPDA for a 106-unit apartment building off the ramp from Soldiers Field Road towards Brighton.
The new apartments at 1500 Soldiers Field Rd. would replace an "obsolete" 1960s commercial building and would, the filing says, solidify "a gateway concept to the Charles River on Soldiers Field Road, transitioning away from the current 1960’s strip-style, one-story sprawl which is outdated and not in conformance with modern day planning standards for the City of Boston."
Ballas says the building would have 38 studios, 51 1-bedroom units, and 17 2-bedroom units. Some 14 of the apartments will be rented as affordable. The building would have 60 parking spaces in an underground garage.
The building's "saw-tooth design" will give 75% of the units a view of the Charles River as well as allow for creation of two publicly accessible greenspaces.
Ballas hopes to begin construction by the end of this year, with occupancy by mid-2022.
