Rentals to Condos Proposed for 3353 Washington St. Project Going Condos; Community Meeting May 22

There will be a community update on May 22 about a 45-unit apartment building proposed for Washington Street that was previously met with opposition by neighbors and politicians. The Boston Planning and Development Agency (BPDA) is hosting a public meeting to provide an update about the six-story mixed-use project proposed by Boston Community Ventures. At the meeting, Boston Community Ventures will discuss its plan to change the project from rental units to condos. The design of the building isn't going to change, and the building will still have 45 residential units, which will be available for homeownership. There will also be 9 affordable homeownership opportunities -- 20 percent of the building; Six of those units will be sold at 50 percent of the area median income (AMI) and three units would be sold at 70 percent AMI.
