SB-Urban has gained final design approval for its Blagden Alley micro-unit project.
In partnership with Rooney Properties, SB-Urban is planning a no-parking, two-building project at 90 and 91 Blagden Alley, with 121 furnished, compact units for young professionals. The Historic Preservation Review Board (HPRB) gave the proposal the green light on Thursday, UrbanTurf reported.
The design by architect Hickok Cole went before the HPRB last summer and was well-received, except for one feature — a pedestrian walkway crossing the alley, linking the development’s “main” apartment building to the amenities building. Hickok Cole altered the bridge concept to include a glass roof, and the HPRB approved the new version, with some minor changes.
The project was OKed by the Board of Zoning Adjustment in February, according to UrbanTurf.
Leases are anticipated to be seven to eight months, with a minimum of 90 days. The developer plans to offer bikeshare and carshare memberships to compensate for the complex’s lack of parking, and residents may even get a continental breakfast.
