Major New Housing Proposed


Pine Street Inn and The Community Builders, a leading nonprofit developer of mixed-income housing, have announced a partnership to build a mixed-use building at 3368 Washington Street, Jamaica Plain, the most significant project of its kind in Boston to date.

The new building will replace the existing Pine Street warehouse/office building and proposes to create 225 apartment homes, 140 of which would be housing units with support services for men and women moving out of homelessness; the other 85 units, to be managed by The Community Builders, would be income-restricted for families. The design, by Boston-based RODE Architects, includes offices along with community space and over 13,000 square feet of outdoor space.

“This project represents a major step forward in our efforts to solve homelessness in Boston,” said Pine Street President Lyndia Downie. “The number of units in this building will allow us to scale up our housing to a new level, bringing us close to 1,000 units of supportive housing throughout Boston and in Brookline,” she added.

We will continue to update you as this exciting project moves forward.
