The Real Deal has specifics on the Congress Street townhouse project, which includes the restoration of buildings at 122-128 Congress Street and new townhouses for 110-120 Congress Street. (We broke the news about the site purchase in March and had a follow-up post in June about initial development plans.) Although the plans have not been approved from the LPC yet, the development firm (also responsible for 184 Kent) plans to break ground in the fall and estimates a one-year completion time. The townhouses will be four stories, with four bedrooms, three full baths, and private outdoor space. Square footage will span from 3,000 to 3,500 and prices will range from $2.5 and $3 million, according to the developer. The architects, who most recently designed the Wythe Hotel, have come up with an historically sensitive design (including limiting the building materials to those that were available in the mid-19th century) like many of the older townhouses in the neighborhood. Community Board Six approved the proposal and the date with LPC is tentatively set for August 14th.
