New Proposal For I-195 Land

Boston-based CV Properties wants to develop an apartment building on the west side of the Providence River, north of the parcel that was recently in the news. My immediate reaction? I don’t hate it. The image featured here shows the first phase; below is an aerial image of the eventual master plan comprising three buildings. From the Boston Globe:

CV Properties submitted their proposal to the 195 Redevelopment District Commission and company representatives will present their plans during a meeting on April 19. The proposal, which was shared with the Globe on Wednesday, includes plans for a 149-unit residential building to anchor Parcels 14 and 15 along Dyer Street. The proposal also outlines the firm’s plans for an adjacent parcel of land owned by Brown University.

The public is invited to comment at the next regular meeting of the I-195 Redevelopment District Commission to be held in District Hall on Dyer Street. The public comment session follows opening remarks by Chairperson Crisafulli.
