The Newton-based owner of the The Longwood apartments in Boston’s Mission Hill neighborhood wants to develop another 115-unit apartment building next door.
Wingate Cos. would demolish a 175-space parking garage that services the existing 147-unit Tremont Street apartment building to make way for a new six-story, 83,000-square-foot residential development at 95 St. Alphonsus St., near the Longwood Medical and Academic Area.
The real estate investment and property management company’s new Longwood II Residences would include 40 studios, 35 one-bedroom units, 10 one-bedrooms with dens and 30 two-bedroom apartments. Fifteen of the apartments would be designated affordable.
Wingate’s plans call for a new courtyard between The Longwood and Longwood II Residences that would serve as a vehicle drop-off area for the new building and the pedestrian entrance to its lobby and amenity spaces.
The new building would have 130 parking spaces on the first floor and basement level that would be shared by residents of both Win-gate apartment buildings.
