Banker & Tradesman is reporting the following development:
Boston University plans to build housing for its medical school students along Albany Street in Roxbury.
The university purchased 817 Albany St. for $7 million on Feb. 20. The site includes a five-floor warehouse, according to registry records …
… any existing buildings will be demolished and replaced with a mixed-use development that could include offices. The property is near Boston Medical Center and the Boston University Medical Campus …
Original plans: Albany Fellows, at 817 Albany Street, in Roxbury, is proposed mixed-use development made up of 265 residential units, 8,000 square feet of retail space, and 29,000 square feet of space set aside for Backstreets. There will be as many as 300 parking spaces.
Replacing condo projects with student housing?
Great. Solve the housing inventory problem and solve the student dorms problem, at the same time!
