The holiday season hasn’t slowed the drive for supply to catch up with demand in Boston.
The non-profit Carribean Integration Community Development and the Archdiocese of Boston-affiliated Planning Office of Urban Affairs have partnered as Cote Village LLC to build 71 apartments in Mattapan.
According to the Letter of Intent filed with the Boston Redevelopment Authority, the developer would take over a vacant and blighted property at the intersection of Cummins Highway and Regis Road and build 24 units in townhouses along Regis Rd and 47 in a four-story building on Cummins Highway.
The development would also include commercial space, a recreation area and, curiously, 84 parking spaces. Not only is Mattapan between 30 and 40 percent car-free, but a major bus route, the 30, stops right at that building. Moreover, a stop on the MBTA’s Fairmount Line is being constructed behind the site, between Blue Hill Avenue and Cummins Highway.
