According to Uhub, the car-less apartment building I wrote about a while ago is going to happen, but with 35 parking spaces…mostly because locals complained that the residents would just park on the street.
The Boston Redevelopment Authority tonight gave preliminary approval to architect Sebastian Mariscal’s 44-unit apartment building at North Beacon and Everett streets in Allston. Mariscal originally proposed only six parking spaces – all for Zipcar or equivalent rentals – and to only rent to people who agreed not to own cars. But he agreed to put in 35 spaces after nearby residents said they didn’t think Mariscal could keep tenants from buying cars and then parking them on the streets of the neighborhood.
The more things change the more they stay the same, shame I think it was a good idea.
