80 New Apartments slated for 1505 Commonwealth Avenue in Brighton

80 New Apartments – 1505 Commonwealth Avenue – Brighton

An underutilized five-story office building will be transformed into 80 new apartments at 1505 Commonwealth Avenue in Brighton. Partners Properties, LLC will renovate the existing building and construct a new 8,000 square foot addition within the current footprint of the site. The developer anticipates a mix of studios, one- and two-bedroom units, and one-bedroom lofts. Ten of the units will be designated as affordable in accordance with the city’s policy.

There will be 80 on-site parking spaces for residents as well as a landscaped plaza that opens onto Commonwealth Avenue. The developer will make a voluntary contribution of $25,000 to the City of Boston’s Fund for Parks to help maintain green space in the neighborhood and a $5,000 donation to the Brighton Youth Soccer Program.

Construction is anticipated to begin in the third quarter of this year and last for 12 to 14 months.
