The Unique Cleaners building at 820 Post Street was purchased for $1,528,000 this past August. The rent was soon raised. The laundry is now out of business. And plans to raze the building for an eight-story development have been drawn.
As designed by Elevation Architects, the proposed project would yield 12 apartments over a 1,200 square foot commercial space on the ground floor.
While zoned for development up to 80 feet in height, the existing structure upon the site was identified as a potential historic resource back in 1978. But with only the cornice of the building’s original façade remaining, it was deemed to be ineligible for the National Register in 1991.
