The approved mixed use project consists of forty-five apartments and a retail space comprising approximately 46,239 gross square feet total floor area. The apartment unit mix consists of thirty-five One-Bedroom apartments and ten Two-Bedroom apartments. There will be a ten (10) space ground floor garage. There will be 13% Affordable Housing use for this project. The proposed project will abut an existing three-story office and commercial building.
Ten Taber Street will have direct frontage on Taber Street and Warren Street and will be across Warren Street from the historic Ferdinand Building. The Ferdinand Building is a five-story Baroque Revival, wedge-shaped building constructed of limestone, terra cotta, decorative brick and granite with a copper cornice.
The Ferdinand Building is a rare existing example of the 19th century department store. The Ferdinand was advertised as the “Largest Home Furnishings Establishment in the US” and given its location across from the Dudley Transportation Station, it influenced the development of Dudley Square as a transportation and commercial center in its heyday.
