BOSTON-Roseland Associates is looking to convert its plans for Pier One, its 585-unit project on East Boston’s waterfront, from rental apartments to condominiums. The move comes as developers across the city are converting just about anything–industrial, commercial or residential space–into condos.

A spokesperson for the Boston Redevelopment Authority, confirms for GlobeSt.com that New Jersey-based Roseland has indicated its plan to shift its project from rental units to condos. Calls to Roseland’s local office were not returned by deadline, but they spokesperson tells GlobeSt.com that because Pier One is in its final stages of its permitting process the BRA will be requesting additional information on the developer’s plans. “There doesn’t need to be a new filing. We just need supplemental information.”

The spokesperson adds that the proposal will probably require a public comment period about the shift before being approved. Pier One is being developed on 68 acres of waterfront property owned by the Massachusetts Port Authority. The development includes a refurbished shipyard and an expanded marina and is part of an effort by the city to revitalize this gritty industrial area.
