Goddard House project goes before City’s design commission

The Goddard House project is slated to go before the Boston Civic Design Commission (BCDC) on the night of Feb. 23, after the Gazette deadline, according to Boston Redevelopment Authority spokesperson Nick Martin.

The BCDC reviews the project for the design of the building and its impact on public spaces and streets.

Eden Properties and Samuels & Associates have plans to redevelop the former Goddard House property at 201 S. Huntington Ave. into 167 apartments.

The BRA held a community meeting for the project on Nov. 23, with most attendees speaking in favor of the project, though some raised questions over the affordability component.

The Goddard House controversially ceased operations on Sept. 8, 2012 and has remained vacant ever since. The enormous brick building was constructed in 1927 and housed about 100 seniors.

The developers, Eden Properties and Samuels & Associates, had filed their letter of intent last year.

The project is anticipated to begin construction in summer 2016. For more information, visit bit.ly/1l01M2J.
