The city's Zoning Board of Appeals signed off on the redevelopment of the old Flanagan & Seaton Motor Car Co. at 3521-3529 Washington Street in Jamaica Plain, a project first pitched in 2010 and one joining a rush of change along that corridor. Major alterations to the 132-unit project pushed it over the approval hump and into the pile of coming-soon Boston apartment complexes.
One of the biggest changes to the project involved parking: Plans for it out front along Washington Street have been nixed in favor of underground spots as well as ones in a central lot, according to Chris Helms at the JP News. Also, rather than three buildings, we're talking a denser two now—one five stories and the other four—which leaves room for a community garden and other outdoor space. Some 25,000 square feet of retail and a 132,000-square-foot self-storage facility are also part of the plans.
