Mixed-use development planned in N. Allston

A developer filed a proposal with the city of Boston this week to build a 350,000- square-foot retail and residential development on land owned by Harvard University in Allston.

The plans call for two buildings with about 325 apartments, 45,000 square feet of ground-floor space for retail use and residential amenities, and 3,600 square feet of outdoor open space. One of the buildings would be seven to nine stories, and the other would be six stories.


About 180 underground parking spaces would be built along with 41 on-street spots on two new streets within the 2.7-acre project site at the intersection of North Harvard Street and Western Avenue.

The project now seeks Boston Redevelopment Authority approval. The developer, Samuels & Associates, said it hopes to start construction next fall and finish the project in about two years, according to the 452-page plan.
