The Residences at Coleridge Coast
Location: East Boston, MA
Client: Rock Development
Market Sector: Residential
Rock Development is proposing the construction of a mixed-use development on an approximately 19,000 square foot (sf) lot in East Boston, Massachusetts. The property is bound by Coleridge Street to the north, Rice Street to the east, Boston Harbor to the south, and a residential parcel with a two-story wood frame house to the west. The adjacent Harborview/Orient Heights neighborhood is characterized by a mix of land uses including recreational, commercial, and industrial space and two to three-story single and multi-family residences on small urban lots. The Massachusetts Bay Transportation Authority (MBTA) Orient Heights and Wood Island Blue Line stations are located within a 15 to 20 minute walk (less than 1 mile) of the project site. The East Boston Greenway Connector and Bennington Street also serve as main neighborhood thoroughfares. The project site is proximate to the East Boston Yacht Club, Constitution Beach, Porrazzo Skating Rink, Wood Island Bay Edge Park, and the Salesian Boys and Girls Club. The Owner is proposing to develop the project site into a 19-unit transit-oriented residential building with 22 parking spaces in an underground parking garage and a new, publicly accessible community space (a Facility of Public Accommodation of approximately 1,820 gsf). Additionally, there will be significant landscape and street improvements and a new, publicly accessible Harborwalk on Boston Harbor.
