Nearly 300 apartments as well as ground-floor retail and parking could replace the old Hughes Oil site off Washington Street near the Orange Line tracks.
The development would rise next to another planned project: a five-building, mixed-use complex that's due to include 42 apartments as well as retail and parking (and a self-storage facility). That project, at 3521-3529 Washington Street, is moving forward again after a hazardous-chemical discovery last year halted things (we've all been there).
The more recently proposed project would be on a 2.8-acre site at 3593-3615 Washington, next to Orange Line and commuter-rail tracks. Though little more than a letter of intent, per Matt Rocheleau at Boston.com, we think the 289-apartment project has a decent shot of sprouting, even in a JP notoriously averse to development. Stay tuned (and, in the meantime, check out our Rental Heatmap of where the new apartment buildings are going around the Hub).
