Developers of a proposed South Boston residential building will be in front of the community Wednesday evening to pitch their project.
Dubbed Dahlgren Hall, the project at 309 E St. proposes constructing a four-story residential building for 18 market-rate and affordable units. Twenty accessory off-street parking spaces in a ground-level garage would be included in the project, with vehicles entering and exiting the building via Silver Street.
A community meeting for the project will be held Wednesday at the Laboure Center, located at 275 West Broadway, from 5:30 p.m. - 7 p.m.
The project will be led by South Boston-based developer Michael McGough, according to the development’s Project Notification Form.
Currently the 9,060-square-foot site slated for construction, is home to five residential units and an open parking lot. Plans call for the restoration of the façade of the hall that currently resides on the property with additions to the top of it.
The Dahlgren Memorial Hall has been in the neighborhood since at least the 1880’s and has been used in the past by veteran organizations, according to the Project Notification Form.
“The goal of the proposed building design is to recreate and restore a bit of the historic fabric of South Boston,” said the Project Notification Form.
Overall the building is expected to be 69-feet at its tallest point, with the upper level housing common space and a screened roof deck. The ground-floor will be home to a parking garage and a lobby. The unit make-up will consist of three one-bedroom and 15 two-bedroom units.
