Plans Now Known for Redevelopment of 610 Newton Place

610 Newton Place

610 Newton Place as it was in November 2012

In early February, I was able to report that the long empty apartment house at 610 Newton Place was destined to be developed. Along with the large empty lot behind it, the property changed hands in November 2012 from the New Commandment Baptist Church to new owners for $1,425,000. Construction permits for the new one story addition at the existing building with a new three story rear addition were issued on May 14th, so the property should quickly become an active work site.

The development as designed is completely as a matter-of-right and will add an addition to the rear of the two-story structure as well as add a third story. According to the plans, the original structure will be converted into two two-story, two-bedroom units. The new construction will add an additional ten units, all two-bedroom, for a total of twelve two-bedroom units. The four uppermost units also have their own roof decks.

Below is the floor plan of the third floor addition. All in all, I think this is a very positive development for this block of Newton Place.

    Yes — yaaaay! It is high time for this 🙂 I too want to know what the parking situation will be — please tell me they are putting in spaces for tenants?

    Also — you mentioned before that the block can be greened-up with some more trees, anything new on that front?
