488 Dorchester Ave
488 Dorchester Avenue will consist of 33 condos (with parking) as well as commercial/retail space for the ever-changing Andrew Square neighborhood. The four-story building will contain 33 two-bedroom residential units as well as 33 parking spaces, one per unit. Of the 33 residential units, five of the units will be affordable living units. Each of the two-bedroom units will vary in size, but will range between 840 and 1360 sq.ft. per unit.
The first floor will contain 2,091 sq.ft. of retail/commercial space (some of which will be saved for “new restaurant space”). New restaurants are always welcome in the neighborhood, and Andrew Square could use a new restaurant to continue to bring in business and development!
The outer “skin” of the building will be a combination of brick, metal panels, glass fenestration, and painted fiber cement trim. Construction of 488 Dorchester Avenue is currently scheduled (if it gains approval) to begin in the third quarter of 2014, with a completion date in the end of 2015.
