The 340 unit mixed use and mixed income Charlesview Residences development in Boston’s Allston-Brighton neighborhood celebrated its grand opening recently when Mayor Thomas Menino and developer ‘The Community Builders’ cut the ribbon on the $141M project. The new Charlesview Residences replaces the 213 unit housing development that has served low to moderate income residents for way more than 40 years. Construction on the development began in 2011.

“It wasn’t a unanimous slam dunk proposal,” said Paul Berkeley, president of the Allston Civic Association. There were people who felt that the density was too much for the neighborhood, while others welcomed more affordable housing. The 2nd and 3rd phases will feature 100 affordable and market rate homes for sale.
