The proposal for the Residences at Forest Hills include 260 rental units across three mixed-use residential and retail buildings over a single-level garage. The new development would take over what is currently a parking lot.
Developers have worked alongside area residents, especially those living on nearby streets, in order to establish a desire and local approval for this project proposal.
There is currently a building boom in Forest Hills as housing is increasingly popping up around transportation hubs. This area of Jamaica Plain is becoming a hot spot in the city and is expected to see even more new development in coming years.
Units at the Residences at Forest Hills would range from studios to three bedroom apartments and three bedroom townhouses. There would also be space for bicycle storage and charging stations for electric cars.
There will be 5,500 square feet of retail and restaurant space along Washington Street as a part of the new development.
Due to the large size of this development it is likely to experience a higher level of scrutiny regarding how it will impact the surrounding are and neighborhood, taking into account what local residents think.
