Teardown projects return to agenda

Three different controversial plans to tear down existing buildings and replace them with denser development return July 16 to the agenda of the Jamaica Plain Neighborhood Council’s Zoning Committee.

And another teardown project at 213 Lamartine St. goes before the Boston Landmarks Commission on July 8.

The teardown projects on the Zoning Committee’s agenda include:

  • 3371-3375 Washington St. and 197-201 Green St., where a house and commercial buildings would become a massive, mixed-use development. The Zoning Committee rejected an earlier version in January.
  • 71 South St., where a house serving as a law office would be replaced by a condo building. The City’s Zoning Board of Appeals shot down an earlier version of the plan two years ago.
  • 266 Lamartine St., where a single-family house would be demolished for multifamily buildings. The developer agreed to delay plans in May to get more community input.

The Zoning Committee meeting will be held at 7 p.m. at Farnsworth House, 90 South St. See the JP Agenda listing for more information.
