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. The project is being made Urban Edge Housing Corporation.
