Print More

There will be a community meeting on July 18 to discuss a proposed six-story, 225 affordable units building on Washington Street that would have 140 units designated for supportive housing for individuals served by property owner Pine Street Inn.

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.

Pine Street Inn and The Community Builders have proposed a 6-story 225-unit building for 3368 Washington Street.

The proposal also includes approximately 60 parking spaces for staff and residents, a community room, and bicycle parking. There would also be a 13,400 sq. ft. outdoor space for building residents, and an estimated 18,000 sq. ft. of Pine Street Inn office space on the ground floor, along with community space and amenities for residents on the first floor.

The city is accepting public comments for this proposal through July 26. You can submit comments through this link.

This is the first meeting in a series of public forums hosted by the Boston Planning Development Agency as part of the Article 80 Large Project Review Process for the proposed development. This meeting will be on July 18 from 6 to 8 pm at 3368 Washington St.
