Developer Mordechai Levin’s 3353 Washington St. project was set to appear before the Jamaica Plain Neighborhood Council’s Zoning Committee on March 22, but its appearance was postponed so the developer could continue talks with neighbors of the project.

The project is slated to go before the Zoning Committee on April 12, after the Gazette deadline.

Levin has proposed an $18 million mixed-use development at the intersection of Washington and Green streets. Levin is a well-known developer in Jamaica Plain who was behind the development of the Stop & Shop and the new Martha Eliot Health Center building in Jackson Square. His current proposal calls for a 46,695-square-foot building at 3353 Washington St. that would have six stories and include 45 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 several 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.

The Boston Planning and Development Agency board approved the project late last year.
