A major change to central JP that would bring rare residential units to the Centre/South business district has started its way through the city's bureaucracy. The plan would raze the one-story building 632-638 Centre St. and transform the plot into a four-story mixed use development.

The building's owner, CBG Realty LLC, is scheduled to argue for variances from zoning rules on Tuesday at City Hall.

According to a Board of Appeals notice, the mixed-use building would have retail on the ground floor, offices and residential on the second floor and residential units on the third and fourth floors. A total of 15 units are envisioned.

The building currently houses the accounting offices of Andrew M. Zuroff, who is listed on the 632-638 Centre St. (left) is next to Southern Jamaica Plain Health Center, Monday, March 9, 2015. 632-638 Centre St. (left) is next to Southern Jamaica Plain Health Center, Monday, March 9, 2015.[/caption]
