Developers Cabot, Cabot & Forbes and Peak Campus have submitted an Expanded Project Notification Form (EPNF) to the Boston Redevelopment Authority (BRA) with new details and renderings for the proposed 663,000 square foot redevelopment of the 11.6-acre Saint Gabriel's Monastery site in Brighton. The following is a link to the EPNF. Per the EPNF, approximately 679 rental residential apartments marketed to "graduate students, young professionals and other university affiliates such as residents, faculty and staff" would be constructed on site. The developers anticipate to start construction in mid-2017; construction would last approximately 24 months.
