No ZBA hearing yet for 64 Allandale St. project

A Zoning Board of Appeals (ZBA) hearing has not been scheduled yet for the 64 Allandale St. project, as the developer still has to go through the neighborhood group review, according to Inspectional Services Department (ISD) spokesperson Lisa Timberlake. ISD oversees the ZBA.

The site at 64 Allandale St. is on the border of West Roxbury and Jamaica Plain. It is part of the West Roxbury Neighborhood District, as a matter of zoning, so it will go through the West Roxbury neighborhood group review.

The Boston Redevelopment Authority approved the project in May.

Jacqueline Nunez, a Dorchester-based developer, plans a $20 million 20-unit project at 64 Allandale St. The project would abut Allandale Woods, which is an “urban wild” of about 100 acres of City- and private-owned land in Jamaica Plain and West Roxbury. The woods is roughly formed by Allandale and Centre streets, the VFW Parkway and Hackensack Road.

The project had many critics at the community meetings who voiced concerns over density, impact on traffic, and the affect it would have on Allandale Woods. Some people spoke in favor of the project, citing it being energy efficient and bringing much needed housing to the city.
