ZBA hearing on 25 Amory St. delayed

The City’s Zoning Board of Appeals (ZBA) hearing on the 25 Amory St. project has been postponed until April 25, according to Inspectional Services Department (ISD) spokesperson Lisa Timberlake. ISD oversees the ZBA.

The project, which is being proposed by the Jamaica Plain Neighborhood Development Corporation, was expected to go before the ZBA on March 14, but that hearing was canceled because of a snowstorm.

The property at 25 Amory St. will be one of two buildings developed along the northern portion of Site III, which is part of the Jackson Square redevelopment. The Boston Redevelopment Authority, which is now the Boston Planning and Development Agency, approved the project last summer.

The 25 Amory St. building will have 44 residential units, all to house family-sized households with a maximum of 60 percent area median income (AMI). There will be a mix of one-, two-, and three-bedroom units, 16 of which will be supported by project-based vouchers, and two of which will be fully accessible for the sensory impaired. The building will be wood-framed and four stories high with residential parking for bicycles and 22 vehicles.
