Five-Story Alton Road Project With ‘Prominent’ Grocer Planned

Elion Partners and members of the Soffer family are proposing a five-story mixed-use project on the corner of 17th Street and Alton Road.

The project takes advantage of newly increased height limits in the area. It will include a 30,699 square foot ground floor with a “prominent” supermarket. The upper levels will include 221 parking spaces, along with 29 residential units.

The development site includes a former Shell gas station and an adjacent surface parking lot. The developers are requesting city approval to build above a public alley between the two sites, with a hearing before the Planning Board scheduled for next month.

Touzet Studio is the project architect.
