A developer has filed plans with the BPDA to replace a single-family home at 22 High St. in Dorchester with a $ 4.2 million, 15-unit condominium, across from where another developer wants to replace another single-family house with a building of 23 apartments.
Plans by developer Ricky Beliveau of Volnay Capital in south Boston call for 15 parking spaces in a garage under the three-story building on what he says is now an “underutilized lot.”
The proposed project will adapt to the character of the neighborhood and provide the necessary housing units for the community.
The building would also have several private terraces as well as a common rooftop terrace for residents, who will be able to enjoy “breathtaking views of the Boston skyline.”
His dossier describes the design of the building:
The proposed design blends traditional New England vernacular with a contemporary gable roofline and exterior detailing. The clustering along High Street seeks to reduce the overall perceived size of the structure, further softened by the winding path and landscaped entrance to the building. The faceted facade along the north and south elevations gives rhythm and scale to the building, reminiscent of the row houses and three-story homes higher up the hill.
BÃ©liveau hopes to start a year of construction this spring. In addition to the BPDA, it will also need zoning board waivers.
