Notice of Project Change Filed for Washington Village
Samuels & Associates and DJ Properties have filed a notice of project change for Washington Village in South Boston. The change would result in an additional 90 residential units and around 15 parking spaces while retail space would be reduced by approximately 16,600 square feet.
New plans would replace approved Buildings A & B with one single building to include 214 residential units, 20,500 square feet of retail space and around 58 parking spaces. An increase in ground floor ceiling height and addition of one partial residential floor would increase the building height for this new building by around 15 feet. The project change also proposed to move "The Green" to the west of the new building. The relocation of The Green will result in more activation of the streetscape along Damrell Street.
The filing also notes changes to construction phasing on the project. According to the document, the first phase will include only this new building plus around 115 temporary surface parking spaces on the Buildings E and G sites. The development team now expects construction to begin in the 2nd quarter of 2020 with the remaining buildings to be constructed in future phases depending on market conditions.
