F & L Realty Development has filed plans with the Somerville Planing Board to build a 12 unit, mixed-use apartment building at the intersection of Medford and Ward Streets. The new four story, 47 foot, three inch tall building would replace two three story buildings.
The apartments will range in size from studios to three-bedrooms and there will be around 1,120 square feet of commercial space on the ground floor. In total the building will be 17,362 square feet on a 6,968 square foot lot. The City of Somerville requires 22 parking spaces, but the developers have requested a variance to provide only 14.
The site is located close to the Cambridge line and is walking distance to Union Square, the Star Market in the Twin City Plaza, Inman Square, East Cambridge and ultimately Lechmere Station, as well as multiple bus routes of varying frequency and reliability.
