Renderings revealed of 125 Amory Street mixed-income development in Jamaica Plain
The proponents of the $150 million 125 Amory Street mixed-income development in Jamaica Plain have revealed renderings of the project’s three proposed new-construction buildings, as well as a site plan for the overall project. The new-construction buildings are designed to relate to the materials of adjacent warehouse buildings, the existing housing complex on site which would be renovated and overall neighborhood scale. Renderings of the buildings show large scale windows and bays, with stepped volumes to resonate with neighboring two- and three-family homes. The overall 125 Amory Street site plan calls for a new linear park along the MBTA Orange Line, with new community spaces and roadways throughout the six-acre site.
125 Amory Street would construct a total of 353 new apartments, 135 of which would be designated affordable, across the three new buildings. The existing 199-unit complex on site would be fully renovated, and ten new affordable senior housing units would be constructed within. 125 Amory Street’s proponents anticipate to commence renovation of the existing building in the second quarter of 2018, and construction of the three new buildings by the end of 2018. The latest renderings of 125 Amory Street are posted above. The project is now undergoing design review by the Boston Planning & Development Agency (BPDA).
