The owner and applicant pitching the project, which would rise at the southeastern corner of Melrose and New Hampshire Avenues, is listed as Alex Amirkhanian, a founder of real estate investment management company Tower Investments Group.

The project site consists of a four-unit mixed-use building and a commercial building that has held tattoo shop Marginalized Tattoo. It was acquired by an affiliate of TIG in 2014 for about $2.2 million, according to county property records.

Plans call for the site’s current buildings to be demolished to make way for a roughly 29,000-square-foot mixed-use building with 30 one-bedroom apartments over about 1,650 square feet of ground-floor commercial space at the corner of Melrose and New Hampshire Avenues.

The applicant is requesting Tier-3 project incentives under the city’s transit-oriented communities program, including a height increase from 50 feet to about 67 feet and a 67-percent density bonus, among other incentives. The project developer would reserve three apartments for extremely low-income households, plans show.

The architect for the proposed development is listed as Bittoni Architects.

Project plans include an array of amenities, including a movie room, residential lounge with co-working space, and a second-floor yoga room with a balcony.

The development would provide 19 automobile parking spaces across underground and at-grade levels of parking, as well as 20 bicycle spaces. Vehicular access would be given by two entry points from New Hampshire Avenue.
