Live: 36 homeownership units, $1.9 million contribution to the IDP fund
Work: Approximately 122 construction jobs
Connect: New sidewalks and speed humps in vicinity of project
Sustain: LEED Gold, net carbon ready

“The project at 96-100 Rockwood Street in Jamaica Plain consists of the construction of 13 new separate residential structures and the renovation of the existing stone farmhouse onsite. In total, there will be 36 residential units, and housing will be a mix of two and three-bedroom units. The project will also include bike storage for residents and visitors. The buildings and property will feature energy conservation and sustainable building technologies, such as all-electric heating and cooling systems and a rain garden to collect and manage rainwater runoff onsite. As part of the review process, Planning, Transportation, and Urban Design staff focused on: preserving the site’s ecology and trees, ensuring adequate density and design that conforms to the area’s larger residential context, providing appropriate site access and street network for future residents, and securing public benefits and funds for public realm improvements, IDP fund contributions, and contributions to local charities. This project will contribute $1.9 million towards affordable housing, $50,000 to the Parks and Recreation Department, and another $50,000 towards three local organizations. In addition, the project will contribute $49,000 to the Boston Transportation Department in support of the bikeshare system and to provide space for a Bluebikes dock onsite.”

Regarding the Doyle's restoration project, of which 60 and 69 Williams are a part of, does anyone know when and if the actual Doyle's part of this project is happening? On a related note, does Brassica taking over the old Dogwood location affect this project, since they were supposed to be the team behind the new Doyle's?

Looks like Brassica is out of the Doyle's development. I just hope this gets going soon.

Developer proposes replacing auto-repair garage with apartments on Washington Street near Hatoff's​


By adamg on Fri, 04/05/2024 - 12:36pm
Rendering of proposed apartment building at 3458 Washington St.


“A developer has proposed replacing an auto-repair garage and parking lot at 3458 Washington St., across Kenton Road from Hatoff's gas station in Jamaica Plain with a 37-unit, five-story apartment building.
About half the apartments in Adam Burns's proposal would be studios, with 15 one-bedroom units and 4 two-bedroom apartments. The ground floor would have commercial space.
Eight of the apartments would be rented as affordable.
The proposal calls for seven parking spaces.
Burns hopes to begin construction on the $8-millon project, just up the street from the Doyle's condo project, early next year, with completion targeted for the end of 2026.
Filings and meeting schedule.”

Nice renderings.... how is a car supposed to get in that garage? Also single family houses are the only way we can get 3-4 bed units around here?
To be fair these 3 units replaced one single family home so it is an upgrade in terms of number of units. Every bit helps I suppose. If you walk down the hill 2 blocks to Washington Street there are a couple hundred new or under construction units. JP is doing its part to add to the housing stock.
 
Yes, I suppose every unit does help, but this helps the least. It's a few 3 or 4000 sq ft condos on a big lot.

JP is a suburb
 
Not sure the point you're making, but most of JP is a classic streetcar suburb, so dense rows of triplexes, a la Somerville. But along the edges, it's more auto-oriented SFHs, like these lots.

agree on how it developed, but given the fact that it has a heavy rail rapid transit spine running pretty much through the center of the entire neighborhood, there should be 20+ storey apartment towers next to every OL station. the fact it hasn't been allowed to densify much at all is pretty embarrassing.

I agree this could be better, and there's more the city could do to allow/encourage densification. But just some slight optimism, it seems like that densification is happening, especially in the past 10-15 years. There are a bunch of new apartment buildings, especially right around Jackson Square and Forest Hills.

Amen. I'm right now Google Streetviewing Amory Street next to the Green St OL station and that is pathetic - - with the huge residential need this city has..........

 
100% boomer pastoralist NIMBYism turning the area next to green st station into ahistorically low density homes + vacant lots. And the historical density was far too low for heavy rail subway proximate areas.
