The following is a link to the MBTA's full presentation for the project. As previously reported, the project would construct 135 residential units in the heart of Mattapan Square across two new five-story buildings. 69 units (51% of total) would be designated affordable. The buildings would also contain 12,000 square feet of retail, up from previously reported 10,000 square feet. The project would create 25-41 full-time and 6 part-time job opportunities in Mattapan Square. A total of 173 parking spaces would be located on site, including 50 for MBTA commuters. A connection to the new Neponset River Greenway would also be constructed. The project will now undergo review by the Boston Redevelopment Authority (BRA). The following is a rendering of the proposed project: View along River Street The following is a locus graphic: Locus graphicPOAH and Nuestra will enter a 99-year lease with the MBTA for the parking lot and will make annual rent payments for the lease's first 20 years starting at $210,000 in 2017 and increasing annually by 1.5%. A total of $4,885,970 in rent will be paid to the MBTA. The project has a Net Present Value (NPV) of $2,954,307.08 calculated with a 5% discount rate.
