Developers propose Brighton Marine apartment building

Boston developers are proposing to build 101 units of rental housing on 1.5 acres of property along Commonwealth Avenue in Brighton.

The project next to the Brighton Marine Health Center calls for construction of a six-story building that would contain apartments for a mix of income levels. About half of the units would be intended for veterans and their families.

Brighton Marine and codeveloper Winn Development Co. outlined their plans for the property in documents released by the Boston Redevelopment Authority on Thursday. The project would add to an array of large residential construction projects in Boston, as developers seek to capitalize on high demand for new housing.

But the Brighton Marine project would be unusual for its large number of affordable units. Eighty percent would be set aside for low-income individuals and families, according to the filing with the city.

The main building on the Brighton Marine campus is a former hospital originally owned and operated by the federal government’s Public Health Service to provide medical care to seamen. It became the Brighton Marine Health Center in 1981, dedicated to providing care to military families and the local community.

With the development proposal, the nonprofit’s mission is expanding to provide housing and medical care. Its campus also houses The Home for Little Wanderers program for children and families, the Addiction Treatment Center of New England, and the Brighton Allston Mental Health Association.
