The board of the Boston Redevelopment Authority approved the renovation and expansion of the Goddard House in Jamaica Plain last week.
Eden Properties, LLC and Samuels & Associates, Inc. have proposed renovating and expanding the existing Goddard House, and construction of a new residential building. The Goddard House is at 201 South Huntington Ave., and is a former nursing home built in 1926-1927, which closed in 2012. The entire project is on a two-acre site.
With the BRA board’s approval, the 167-unit project will move forward. Of the 167 residential units, 110 will be located in the renovated Goddard House with 57 units in the new building. Twenty-two of the total units on-site will be designated affordable.
In addition to the renovation of the Goddard House and the new building, the project will include 180 spaces allotted for indoor and outdoor bicycle parking and a combination of covered and surface vehicle parking for 83 spaces. There will also be open space improvements that will include a landscape buffer in front of the building with new street trees to improve the pedestrian area.
