Developers have filed a proposal to add 363 apartments - roughly 40% of them deemed affordable - in three new buildings as they work to renovate the BHA's current Amory Street Apartments for senior citizens at 125 Amory St.
In a "letter of intent" filed with the BPDA dated June 12, but only received yesterday, Amory Street Partners, the Community Builders, the Jamaica Plain Neighborhood Development Corp. and Urban Edge say they will file more detailed plans within the next two months for their proposal, which calls for three buildings up to six stories high with 353 new apartments - 125 to be marketed as affordable - and 10 new affordable units limited to senior citizens to be built in what is now BHA office space on the site.
The proposal also includes a complete rehab of the current building, which houses 199 seniors.
The developers are proposing 262 parking spaces, three new private roads and "a linear park adjacent to the MBTA Orange Line."
