Jamaica Plain apartment complex across from Forest Hills T stop gets green light

252 units

Boston’s Zoning Board of Appeal has signed off on a three-building, 252-unit apartment complex in Jamaica Plain called the Residences at Forest Hills.

It’s the final regulatory hurdle for the trio of six-story buildings that will, not surprisingly, go up across from the Orange Line’s Forest Hills stop.

Waltham-based developer Criterion Development Partners plans to include around 140 parking spaces—surface and garage—for the complex as well as for a nearby funeral home and for whichever business(es) occupy the 5,500 square feet of ground-floor retail in the Residences at Forest Hills.

The development will include 58 studios, 125 one-bedrooms, 58 two-bedrooms, and 11 three-bedrooms, with 50 units designated as affordable. It replaces a parking lot; and is one of the biggest transit-oriented developments in JP in a while.
