The owner of 409 Huntington Ave. says it will soon file plans with the BPDA to add 14 new floors to the shell of the current apartment building - and pledges to hire Franklin Institute students to work on the project.
In a letter of intent yesterday, Tremont Asset Management, which has owned the building for 50 years, says its project will mean 153 total residential units within an exterior that features "an artful and intentional step back, preserving the original and historic character at the site" not to mention a rooftop patio and pool.
The company says it would upgrade the "underdeveloped pocket park" that now separates the building from the MFA.
The proposal will include 40 parking spaces in one-level underground garage.
