JPNDC, Developer Want to Purchase Stonley Road Project, Make All Units Affordable Housing

The Jamaica Plain Neighborhood Development Corporation (JPNDC) and a development company want to purchase Stonley Road property to make a project previously approved by the city for 45 rental units. JPNDC and Traggorth Companies filed a notice of small project change with the Boston Planning and Development Agency (BPDA) to purchase the land and make the project the BPDA already approved in December 2019. Along with being new owners of the property, they would like to make all 45 units income-restricted. The original owners of the property were approved to make the project with 22% of the units deemed affordable housing. There will be a virtual public meeting on Tuesday, Nov.


BPDA Board Approves Two JP Projects: 65 Units, All Income-Restricted; 45 units, 10 income-restricted

Two proposed Jamaica Plain projects approved by the Boston Planning & Development Agency board on Dec. 12 will provide more income-restricted housing to the city. The existing buildings at 1595-1599 Columbus Ave. will be demolished, and a 65-unit, six-story building in which all units would be income-restricted, will be built. There would also be 4,000 square feet of non-residential space on the ground floor, which is being envisioned as a workspace for artists, office space or other uses.
