Seven of the units would be set aside as affordable.City Point bought the site, which is just more than a quarter-mile from the MBTA’s Milton Station, from Molloy Family Limited Partnership for $1.8 million in August 2014.Its project would include indoor bicycle storage, 86 residential parking spaces and eight other spaces for the 3,600 square feet of ground-floor commercial space slated to be two professional offices and/or a locally owned and operated store. Open space plans include a lawn for small-scale informal play, a play area for toddlers and a patio with shaded benches.
