A 21-story apartment building with up to 176 units would replace a long-time parking lot in the Midtown Cultural District under a Boston development team’s proposal.

QMG LaGrange LLC is seeking city approvals for a 157,000-square-foot building at 47-55 LaGrange St., between Washington and Tremont streets, at the edge of the Theatre District. The slope-roofed building designed by Stantec includes just 20 parking spaces. Thirteen of the studio to two-bedroom apartments would be designated as affordable.

QMG LaGrange includes developers John Matteson of Matteson Cos., Steve Goodman of GFI Partners and Fan Du(CQ) of Qianlong Property Development.
The project is subject to review by the Boston Planning & Development Agency. The building’s proposed 240-foot height exceeds the maximum by-right height of 155 feet for the district and will require a Zoning Board of Appeal(CQ) variance.

QMG LaGrange bought the 8,759-square-foot parcel for $3.95 million last year.
