About 5 Washington Street
5 Washington Street will bring a five-story residential building with 108 rental units and 12,500 square feet of ground-floor retail to Brighton. In response to community feedback, the project increased the proposed number of affordable units. Eighteen units will be income-restricted, represented 16.4 percent of the total project. The project will set aside 1,000 square feet of retail for a local business at a discounted rate.
The project will include 104 parking spaces, secured storage for 110 bicycles for residential use, four spaces for retail use, and outdoor spaces for visitor use. 5 Washington Street is adjacent to several public transportation opportunities, including the MBTA’s #65 bus line, as well as the B and C Green Lines.
In addition to further activating a busy intersection in Brighton, the project will provide an improved streetscape and lighting, a new outdoor space with benches and landscape that is open to the community..
