A $16 million apartment project is set to be approved near Kenmore Square. The location is at 900 Beacon St which is located in the Audubon Circle Neighborhood. The area is known for its central location since it is in walking distance to Fenway Park and numerous shops and restaurants.
The Boston Business Journal states, “The developer, 900 Beacon Street Realty Trust, a family company operated by the Yu family of Chestnut Hill, plan to demolish The Elephant Walk Restaurant and construct a five-story, 38,950-square-foot, mixed-use building with 32 one-bedroom apartments and 4,470 square feet of ground-floor retail space. The proposed project will include 36 parking spaces. Of that number, 30 will be underground. It is unclear if Elephant Walk will continue to operate once the project is complete.”
The popular restaurant, The Elephant Walk, may seek another location to operate out of while the apartment project is under construction. Their lease expires in October and the property owner has offered them a space in the new building.
