D Street could soon be the home of 197 rental units, if the Cresset Development project is approved by the city.
The Boston-based development group, filed plans in January for its 197,634-square-foot project at 411 D St. and it has a community meeting set for Tuesday night.
Cresset Development, developer of the Liberty Wharf, has proposed, according to the group’s Project Notification Form, razing the current commercial structure on the site and in its place building two residential structures, with the majority of the units being studios, one-bedrooms, and two-bedrooms.
The ground floor of the six-story and five-story buildings would be used for retail and common space, facing D Street.
Twenty-six of the units will be “Innovation Units”, which are smaller, cheaper units with flexible layouts.
There will be 129 parking spaces for cars underneath the buildings, along with covered bicycle storage.
Cresset estimated in January that the project will cost close to $60 million.
Residents interested in finding out more or providing input on the project, are encouraged to attend Tuesday’s meeting. The meeting starts at 6:30 p.m. and will be held in Room 159 at the Boston Convention and Exhibition Center.
