Parcel U | Forest Hills Update
Construction of 78 mixed-income apartments begins at Parcel U in Forest Hills
Construction of A.O. Flats, a five-story mixed-use building at the corner of Hyde Park Avenue and Ukraine Way in Jamaica Plain’s Forest Hills neighborhood, has begun. Developed by The Community Builders, the LEED Silver-sustainable A.O. Flats will feature 78 mixed-income apartment residences, including 38 designated affordable to middle-income households and 40 designated affordable to low-income households, with 1,620 square feet of ground-floor retail and 1,040 square feet of community space. Initial site excavation at the A.O. Flats site is now underway in order to construct the building’s 42-car underground parking garage.
A.O. Flats will be the third phase of the Parcel U development; the first phase, 24 energy-efficient townhouse condominium residences known as Tilia, is now complete, and the second phase, 24 additional townhouse condominiums, will soon begin construction. Phases One and Two are developed by Urbanica in partnership with Luzern Associates. The 2.9-acre Parcel U is located steps from the Forest Hills transit station. The following are photographs of work underway at A.O. Flats:
