New developer pitches apartments on Stuart St.
by Casey Ross / August 12, 2011
AvalonBay Communities Inc. is proposing to build a 404-unit apartment tower adjacent to the Jacob Wirth restaurant, the latest developer to pitch a large-scale rental housing project in downtown Boston.
The proposed complex would replace an existing parking lot with a 29-story tower that would also include a five-level valet parking garage with 198 spaces.
AvalonBay’s plans were made public yesterday as part of a detailed filing submitted to the Boston Redevelopment Authority.
