CNC, BRA To Continue Review of Parcel 39a Plan
The proposal involves construction of a four-story apartment building in the Charlestown Navy Yard, across from the YMCA.
The Charlestown Neighborhood Council Development Committee and the Boston Redevelopment Authority will co-host a community review meeting regarding the Parcel 39a development proposal on Jan. 24 at 7 p.m. at the Constitution Inn in the Navy Yard.
This is the third community meeting regarding the latest Parcel 39a proposal. The review process began in November 2012 and was continued at a meeting in December.
The developer, Kavanagh Advisory Group LLC, will present their residential development plans for the empty lot known as Parcel 39a, located at the corner of First Avenue and Ninth Street in front of the Constitution Inn YMCA.
Representatives from the Boston Redevelopment Authority will participate in the Jan. 24 meeting, which is part of the official public comment process, according to Mark Rosenshein, chairman of the CNC's Development Committee.
Plans for the site include construction of a four-story, 48,000 sq. ft. building containing 54 apartments. Twenty percent of the units would be marketed as affordable for families earning up to 80 percent of the area median income. The units would include studio and one-bedroom apartments.
