BPDA still reviewing 3353 Washington St.

The Boston Planning and Development Agency (BPDA) is still reviewing the 3353 Washington St. project, according to spokesperson Bonnie McGilpin.

Developer Mordechai 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 44 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 four 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 BRA has held two community meetings on the project, the last taking place June 7.
