A developer has filed plans with the BPDA to replace a coin-op laundry on Taber St. at Harrison Avenue in Nubian Square with a six-story, 30-unit residential building.
Klaus Kimel's $11.3-million proposal also calls for ground-floor retail space and a garage with space for five cars in the proposed building, located about a block from the Nubian Square bus station.
Kimel bought the laundromat, on a 8,900-square-foot lot, for $1.8 million in December. His proposal is somewhat unusual for Nubian Square in that it involves a privately owned lot; most other recent proposals in Nubian Square have involved city-owned lots given to developers in exchange for higher levels of affordable housing than normally required.
The units would be split between one and two bedrooms. Six would be marketed as affordable - in this case to people making up to 80% of the Boston area median income.
The proposal calls for an underground garage with room for five cars.
