A newly proposed rental apartment building on Washington Street would have 225 units, including 140 units designated for supportive housing for individuals served by property owner Pine Street Inn.
Pine Street Inn and The Community Builders (TCB) are partnering on the proposal to construct a new six-story, mixed-use building at 3368 Washington St., which is near Green Street and Glen Road. The existing warehouse facility on the site would be razed and the current uses temporarily relocated.
Pine Street Inn would have a new office onsite for its case management staff and would provide intensive support services to the 140 supportive housing units. TCB would provide operational management of the property, according to Lydia Scott, TCB development project manager. The plan also includes creating an endowment to assist with providing services to residents in the long-term.
Aside from the 140 units designated for supportive housing for individuals served by Pine Street Inn, the remaining 85 units would be available to households earning between 60 to 80 percent of the area median income.
The proposal also includes approximately 60 parking spaces for staff and residents, a community room, resident amenity space and bicycle parking. There would also be a 13,400 sq. ft. outdoor space for building residents.
Plans for the proposal have not yet been submitted to the city as the development team is making the rounds to community meetings. One of the first meetings was a local community meeting on March 5. Pine Street Inn and TCB are scheduled to provide an informational presentation at the Jamaica Plain Neighborhood Council Housing and Development Committee meeting on March 19. That meeting is at 7 pm at the Bowditch School (82 Green St.).
