Washington St. Project: 82 Fewer Units Being Discussed in Public Meeting on March 9

Print More

A virtual public meeting to discuss the impacts of a proposed project at 3390 Washington St., that has drastically reduced its initial proposal for residential units, will be on March 9.

3390 Washington Street, Jamaica Plain proposal as of March 9, 2023.

The project would be on a two-acre site where BMS Paper is currently located, and BMS Paper would be expanded. When it was initially proposed, the project included 160 residential units and a "moderately priced neighborhood style restaurant." The project is now for 78 residential units and off-street parking for 87 vehicles, according to the Boston Planning and Development Agency (BPDA) website. The amount of off-street parking spots has changed since the initial proposal of 195 parking spots.

The BPDA is hosting the Impact Advisory Group (IAG) meeting to discuss the overall project and its potential impacts and develop a mitigation package. The meeting will include a presentation followed by questions and comments from IAG members and the public.

An IAG meeting is different from a traditional community meeting because it prioritizes discussion between the project proponent (i.e. the developer) and IAG members.

Correction: An earlier version of this story said that the proposal included 195 parking spots due to the Boston Planning & Development Agency's webpage about the project not being up to date.
