Jamaica Plain’s Residences at Forest Hills comes into focus

Three-building complex would rise across from Forest Hills T stop

Waltham-based developer Criterion Development Partners filed plans late last week with the Boston Development and Planning Agency for an apartment complex across the street from the Forest Hills T stop.

The filing (PDF) provides the clearest picture yet of the transit-oriented development. It would have 252 apartments—earlier reports pegged it at 260—and those units would be spread over three five-story buildings on what are currently surface parking lots. Fifty units would be designated as affordable, and the so-called Residences at Forest Hills would include 140 parking spaces total, including 130 in a garage. (Pretty reasonable, right, given the T stop?)

There would also be around 5,500 square feet of retail, too. Things are still rather nebulous with this one, so stay tuned. It does scratch Boston’s transit-oriented-development itch, so odds are in Criterion’s favor.
