3193 Washington St. proposal likely heads to BRA board

City Realty’s 3193 Washington St. development proposal is heading to the Boston Redevelopment Authority board, according to spokesperson Nick Martin.

Some residents have voiced opposition to the project, citing its potential impact on gentrification and questioning the reputation of City Realty.

The BRA board will review the project during its Aug. 11 meeting, which is after the Gazette deadline, and will likely approve it. The BRA staff only submits projects to the board when they consider the plans ready for approval.

“We expect 3193 Washington Street to be presented to our board at this Thursday’s meeting for consideration,” Martin said in an email. “We’ve worked diligently with the developer and the community to revise the project so that it reflects the principles and vision of the Plan: JP/Rox process.”

City Realty’s proposal, which has changed and is smaller in scale than what was originally proposed, includes building a 42,170-square-foot development with 40 units (3 studios; 8 one-bedrooms; 17 two-bedrooms; 3 two-bedrooms and den; and 9 three-bedrooms). Seven of the units will be affordable. There will also be 2,560 square feet of retail divide into three spaces.
