Colliers Brokers Sale of MF Development Site in Brighton

Colliers’ Boston office has brokered the sale of a more than three-acre development site in Brighton’s Oak Square neighborhood at 710-712 and 776-682 Washington Street. The sales price was not disclosed.

Colliers was tapped by the seller, St. John Seminary, to sell or ground lease the Washington Street assemblage, which was previously home to the Our Lady of Presentation church, rectory and parking lot. The site sits in an emerging submarket within the City of Boston and provides access to some of Boston’s most prestigious colleges, universities and hospitals. Plans for the site call for a residential development.

The buyer was West Roxbury-based builder and developer Peter Davos.

“I have pursued this site for almost two and a half years. The plan within plan, is to personally move back to Brighton and live at the site. Having built and developed multiple sites in Brighton, I’m sensitive to each neighborhood and pride myself on a completed project that would be appreciated by all,” said Davos. “The Washington St sites are in concept design phase, and I will look forward to meeting with the neighbors shortly for a personal introduction and project presentation.”
