37 new apartments proposed across from Green Line in Brighton
Developer Yan Schechter proposes to construct a new 7-story building at 1440 Commonwealth Avenue in Brighton across from the MBTA Green Line which would feature 37 rental apartment residences. The building would replace an existing single-story retail building and would also contain 3 ground-floor commercial spaces. Construction of 1440 Commonwealth Avenue is expected to commence in Fall 2017, with expected completion in Spring 2019. Schechter has filed plans for the proposed building with the Boston Planning & Development Agency (BPDA). These plans are now under official review.
