Developed by 3190 Washington Street LLC—a venture managed by local developer Justin Lantosca with business partners Paul Iantosca and Dan Mangiacotti—the $25 million mixed-use project is seen as the largest development in Egleston Square in half a century. It will take shape at 3200 Washington St. on a 32,412-square-foot parcel that currently includes a vacant industrial building that was previously occupied by Economy Plumbing and Heating Supply Co., an automotive repair garage and a single level concrete garage.

Under plans designed by RODE Architects, the existing structures will be demolished to make room for a mixed-use complex that will include 76 residential units, nearly 4,500 square feet of ground-floor retail space and an open courtyard situated atop a 41-space parking garage. The project was designed to mediate between the adjacent residential neighborhood scale and Washington Street’s eclectic mix, and will span three buildings.

Construction at 3200 Washington St.  is set to begin this fall and be completed towards the end of 2016. The project will create an estimated 70 construction jobs.
