Make the apartments affordable by sacrificing parking. Why do you need parking when you are next to a transit station?

Agreed that this area is becoming less accessible for families and lower income people. I would support this if we could see more than the bare minimum (~13% affordable) that the city mandates. We don't need more luxury housing, but we need buildings that are closer to 33% affordable.

This project will NOT "enhance" the neighborhood. It will directly contribute to its downfall by pricing people out of spaces and inviting additional unnecessary development. These projects always tout community building and integrating local stores/artists but there's no one to enjoy those things when everyone who can't afford to spend $2500 on a studio has left. There is already plenty of overpriced and underutilized housing in Allston and Brighton. We don't need more.

Exceptionally! Setting aside a handful of "affordable" apartments that people can apply for through the city's affordable housing initiative isn't enough. That program works on an extended waitlist and does not rely on a cycle, requiring potential tenants to pay break their current lease. Apartments need to be affordable for households making below the median income without going through the city's application.
