S. HUNTINGTON—The luxury apartment and retail project proposed for 105A S. Huntington Ave., named “The Serenity,” is undergoing review by the Boston Redevelopment Authority (BRA). A vote by the BRA board has not been scheduled.

“The BRA staff has been reviewing community input and is working with the development team on the project’s design,” BRA spokesperson Melina Schuler told the Gazette.

The 195 luxury rental units in the multi-building development would include townhouses and apartment buildings of one-, two- and three-bedroom units targeted at graduate students and families. The project would also include 26 affordable units, 1,600 square feet of ground-floor retail space and 176 parking spaces in an underground garage.

Cedar Valley Development, managed by Anthony Nader, purchased the 1.1-acre parcel at 105A S. Huntington Ave. from the state in 2005, amid controversy. The site had been used by North American Indian Center of Boston (NAICOB) since the 1970s.
