Allston Co-Living Project Approved
Common Allbright, at 525 Lincoln Street in Allston has been approved by the BPDA. The co-living project will feature 80 units with a total of 280 bedrooms. The building will also include 1,250 square feet of ground-floor community space along with a 4,500 square foot courtyard and parking for 30 cars. To improve mobility for the residents and the neighborhood the project will also offer electric vehicle car-sharing and a $20 transit subsidy for residents. In response to questions from the board on how they will prevent the completed building from turning into an Airbnb the development team discussed 12-month lease requirements, subleasing bans, and a large on-site staff to monitor the property.
