Residence at Readville Station

Local developer Ad Meliora has acquired 1717 Hyde Park Avenue, a 119,034 square foot parcel in Hyde Park located next to the Readville transit station on the MBTA Fairmount Line. Sale price was $2.1 million.
UPDATE: Universal Hub reports that Ad Meloria recently held an informal community meeting in which preliminary plans were presented for a 240-unit apartment building at 1717 Hyde Park Avenue. 31 units would be designated affordable and rented to households making no more than 70% of area median income (AMI).
Three buildings rising up to five stories are currently proposed along with a five-deck parking garage with 400 parking spaces. The buildings would have special insulation to buffer noise from passing trains. A formal Letter of Intent has not yet been filed for the project. The following is a preliminary rendering by project architect Prellwitz Chilinski:
Ad Meliora is currently co-developing Washington Village, a major proposed South Boston development project that would bring approximately 650 residential units and 98,600 square feet of retail space to Andrew Square across 217,800 square feet of land.
