A 345,000-square-foot apartment complex would be built at a former quarry in Hyde Park under development plans submitted by Lincoln Property Co.

The development would include nine low-rise detached buildings and 415 parking spaces on the 14-acre property at 990 American Legion HIghway.

Designed by Heffner Architects of Alexandria, Virginia, the complex would use VFR heat pumps for its HVAC system and electric water heaters, and developers said they clustered rooftop mechanical systems to save space for a potential future solar array.

A zero-carbon design including additional exterior insulation, triple-glazed windows, and an energy recovery system would cost an additional $3.5 million and is not currently financially feasible, according to a utility analysis included with the submission to the Boston Planning and Development Agency.

Buildings would be designed with a mix of two- and three-story split structures with vinyl facades, developers said. The plans also include a clubhouse building and outdoor pool.

The property is part of the former Barry’s Quarry, which was once considered as a location for a campus-style public high school as well as a large-scale residential development.

Developers are targeting a late 2021 groundbreaking followed by an 18- to 22-month construction period.
