Pine Street Inn Update 03/13/19
225 Unit Income-Restricted Development Planned in JP
The Community Builders a leading nonprofit developer of mixed-income housing has partnered with Pine Street Inn, New England’s largest homeless services agency, to build a mixed-use building at 3368 Washington Street, Jamaica Plain, the most significant project of its kind in Boston to date.
The new building will replace the existing PSI warehouse/office building and proposes to create 225 income-restricted apartment homes, 140 of which would be housing units with support services for men and women moving out of homelessness. The design, by Boston-based RODE Architects, includes an estimated 18,000 square feet of PSI office space on the ground floor and community space and amenities for residents. In addition, the plan offers approximately 60 vehicle parking spaces, 85 bicycle storage spaces, and 13,400 square feet of outdoor space.
Mayor Walsh commented on the proposal saying, “Our goal in Boston is simple: end chronic homelessness throughout our city, this proposal has the potential to get us even further to that goal.” I’ve included the full press release below with additional information.
The development team hopes to have construction financing in place for the 2nd quarter of 2020 with construction beginning shortly thereafter.
