Two new five-story market-rate residential buildings that would contain 58 apartments and ground-level commercial space have been proposed along Jamaica Plain's Washington Street corridor near the Green Street MBTA station.
The proposal by CRM Property Management Corp. has been submitted to the Boston Planning and Development Agency and is currently under review, reports the Boston Herald:
The estimated $14.65 million project would replace an existing auto shop, ironworks shop, El Embajador restaurant and a vacant single-family home that would be demolished. The Washington Street site is abutted by commercial buildings and is across the street from a Pine Street Inn facility.
The first building would contain 33 studio and two-bedroom apartments and 850 square feet of commercial space at 3371-3375 Washington St. The second building, at 197-201 Green St., would contain 25 one- to three-bedroom units and 880 square feet of commercial space. Each building would also include outdoor decks, a bicycle room, a gym and a lounge, while a common driveway on Green Street would lead to 20 interior parking spaces within the Washington Street building, and 13 interior spaces within the Green Street building.
Ten of the units would be designated affordable, according to the Herald, which reports that CRM intends to start construction this summer or fall, with targeted completion later next year, pending city approvals. Because of the size of the proposal, the developer will need to file according to Large Project Review regulations and seek zoning relief from the city's Zoning Board of Appeals related to the size and change of use of the parcels in question.
This development is the latest of several mixed-use proposals along the Washington Street corridor between Forest Hills and Egleston Square, including projects at 3193 Washington St. and 3353 Washington St.
