New plans for site of two failed projects on Stuart St

Transom Real Estate, a Boston-based real estate development firm, aims to transform four parcels at 212 Stuart St. on the edge of Boston’s Back Bay into a “high-quality” residential building. Sasaki Associates is the project’s executive and landscape architect, and Howeler + Yoon Architecture is the project’s design architect.

“The project will transform a site that has been underutilized for decades into a welcoming gateway into the Bay Village neighborhood from the north,” wrote Transom on a Dec. 8 project notification form to the BPDA.

The team proposed a 146,000-square-foot, 19-story residential building with 3,000 square feet of ground-floor retail space. The construction is set reach a height of 199 and house 131 units.

Transom’s plan is the third development proposal in the past 11 years for the Stuart Street site. Two development proposals had previously been approved, but never built: a residential building by Ceres-MHP Development LLC and a mixed-use building by Rena LLC.

The 20-month construction is set to begin in the fourth quarter of 2017.
