Notice of Project Change for 7INK by Ollie in the South End
The proposed project change calls to modify the Project’s unit mix in response to assessment of market information both from the Boston market and obtained from operating co- living communities in other locations.
Increased market demand from the targeted demographic of 25-40 year olds has been experienced for the multi-bedroom units due to the lower price point associated with these unit types.
The proposed unit mix modification is as follows:
Previously approved unit mix
New unit mix
1-bedroom (premium units)
The overall increase in the approved total number of bedrooms from 327 to 353 is 8%.
The overall building area, building height and the building envelope/footprint, as approved by the BPDA Board on July 12, 2018, will remain the same. The change to the bedroom count is achieved solely by redesign of the floor plans of the previously approved units.
