There also will be eight subsidized Section 8 apartments, which represents about 15 percent of the building.
The apartment building will have community and retail space on the first floor, but no definite plans have been announced.
“We don’t have a tenant identified yet,” Alberghini said.
In response to a question from a member of the neighborhood group, she said it won’t be a drugstore, which was rumored several years ago.
The fates of the St. Joseph rectory and school building have not been decided. The Planning Office is committed to try to save them and could develop them or possibly market them to other developers, Alberghini said.
