Partners for Jackson’s plans for the first phase of the redevelopment of Jackson Square were scheduled for a Boston Redevelopment Authority (BRA) board vote as the Gazette went to press Thursday, and were expected to be approved, according to BRA spokesperson Jessica Shumaker.

The first phase plans include a Youth and Family Center, retail space and hundreds of housing units. The phase one redevelopment area includes the grassy triangular lot between the Jackson Square T Station and Columbus Avenue, and the Webb Building and adjacent land at Columbus and Ritchie Street.

Partners for Jackson intends to redevelop roughly 11 acres of public and private land in Jackson Square in a multi-phase project.

The Jamaica Plain Neighborhood Council will review the project in a joint meeting with the Roxbury Neighborhood Council at 7 p.m., Tues., Nov 27. The meeting will be held at Bromley-Heath’s Julia Martin House Community Room, 90 Bickford St.
