3353 Washington St. project won’t go to BRA board this month

The 3353 Washington St. project will not go to the Boston Redevelopment Authority board meeting this month, according to spokesperson Nick Martin.

Martin said that the earliest the project would potentially go before the board is in August.

The BRA held a second community meeting on the project June 7 when the development team presented slight alterations to the proposal, including one more affordable-housing unit and reduced building height. That did little to calm attendees who want the development to be more affordable and for the proposal review to be put on hiatus until the JP/Rox planning process is completed.

Developer Mordechai Levin has proposed an $18 million mixed-use development at the intersection of Washington and Green streets. His current proposal calls for a 46,695-square-foot building at 3353 Washington St. that would have six stories and include 44 residential units with about 2,000 square feet of ground-floor retail space. It would also have 24 parking spaces at the rear of the building.

The new building would consist of four residential floors over a ground-floor level, and would contain a mix of one-, two-, and three-bedroom rental units, some with private outdoor terraces. The plans also call for interior storage for around 20 bicycles. The proposed building would contain seven affordable housing units on site.

As part of the project, two existing buildings would be demolished and five parcels of land would be combined into one. The project will need several variances, including for exceeding height limit and for not meeting the minimum parking requirement.
