The BPDA yesterday approved a proposal by the Pine Street Inn and the Community Builders for a 202-unit apartment building on Washington Street, near Green Street, in Jamaica Plain, in which 140 units will be reserved for people in Pine Street Inn programs and the rest rented to people making no more than 80% of the Boston area median income.
The new building will replace a warehouse owned by the Pine Street Inn at 3368 Washington St. and will include space for Pine Street Inn counselors, case managers and other staffers who will help Pine Street Inn clients adjust to life in their new homes. The city's Boston's Way Home program, which works to create permanent homes for the homeless, will provide some funding for ongoing support at the new building.
The proposal will also require approval of the Zoning Board of Appeal.
