The Newest Addition to Jamaica Plain: The Boston Planning & Development Agency (BPDA) approved a 45-unit, $18 million development proposed for the corner of Green and Washington streets at its December meeting.
When 3353 Washington St. was first introduced to the community in April, many neighbors expressed displeasure with various aspects of the project. Subsequently, at a meeting in May, the proposal was rejected.
According to the BPDA press release announcing its approval of the project, 3353 Washington St. will be an approximately 45,286-square-foot residential building with about 2,000 square feet of ground-floor retail space.
The five-story building will include approximately 45 rental units. Eight of the units will be deemed affordable. Six of those units will be targeted at tenants earning 50 percent of the annual median income, and the remaining two units will be for those earning 70 percent AMI.
