On Thursday the Boston Redevelopment Authority (BRA) approved the General Heath Square Apartments, a joint venture of Jamaica Plain NDC and Back of the Hill CDC.
This will be a 47-unit apartment building on a three-fourths acre site at Heath and Bromley streets that is currently vacant lots. The entire project is 56,290 square feet with an estimated total project cost of $17,400,000, according to the BRA.
The entire building will be affordable units with a mix of one-, two- and three-bedroom apartments. Two-thousand square feet of the project will be for community and office space, including covered bicycle and car parking spaces.
Eighteen units will be for families earning less than or equal to 30% of the area median income, or approximately $30,000 for family of four. Sixteen units will be reserved for project based Section 8 or Mass Housing Voucher holders.
The BRA recommended approval and necessary variances at the Zoning Board of Appeals.
