Plans revealed for new mixed-use building in South Boston’s Perkins Square
A series of one-to-three-story commercial buildings at 457-469A West Broadway in South Boston's Perkins Square would be demolished and replaced with a new five-story mixed-use building starting construction in the first quarter of 2019 per newly proposed plans. The five-story building, proposed by Oranmore Enterprises, would feature 44 residences, including 16 one-bedrooms and 28 two-bedrooms, and 13,500 square feet of ground-floor retail space. The proponent has not determined whether residences would be marketed as apartments or condominiums. Completion of the building is expected in the fourth quarter of 2020 pending official approval. Oranmore has submitted plans for the proposed building to the Boston Planning & Development Agency (BPDA), who is now reviewing the project.
