Construction Begins on 50-Unit Brookline Development

Demolition is complete and foundation work is underway as Nauset Construction begins the redevelopment of the site of a former gas station into 50 luxury apartments above 6,500 square feet of ground floor retail space at 1180 Boylston Street in Brookline. 

Located at the corner of Boylston St. (Route 9) and Hammond St., diagonally across from The Street, one of the region’s premier shopping/entertainment destinations and directly across from Longwood Cricket Club, 1180 Boylston Street will be an upscale, transit-oriented, walkable residential community for residents aged 55 and older.

“Removing this long-shuttered service station and constructing this mixed-use development will be a boon to the entire neighborhood, aesthetically and environmentally” said Chestnut Hill Investments principal Raj Dhanda. “1180 Boylston will provide an ideal rental housing alternative for area residents seeking to downsize from their single-family homes while remaining connected to their lifelong community.”

“The site is a zero-lot line project with no staging area in a highly trafficked location. Ensuring project safety and minimizing disruption to retailers, their customers and neighbors while delivering a high quality building is our priority, which is why our experience working on dense urban infill projects in communities like Boston and Cambridge is so beneficial,” said Nauset Construction president Anthony Papantonis.

Designed by CBT Architects, the six-story wood-frame structure will be constructed over a steel podium concrete slab on deck with two levels of below grade parking for 70 vehicles.
