In 2005, Jackson Square Partners (JPNDC, Urban Edge, The Community Builders, and Hyde Square Task Force) was tasked with redeveloping the crossroads between Jamaica Plain and Roxbury. NEI completed a gateway project for the redevelopment in October 2015, Jackson Commons. NEI worked with Urban Edge on the mixed-use project which included 37 mixed-income apartments as well as 12,000 SF of space for a neighborhood learning center and office space.
As the latest addition to the JSRI, the four-story, wood-framed, LEED Silver Certifiable 75 Amory features 39 affordable apartments with 28 residential parking spaces, a community room, and outdoor patio. Many of the 3-bedroom apartments will be on the ground floor with patios and direct access to the street. The property is also conveniently less than a ¼ mile from the Jackson Square T station. 75 Amory will be a vital component in the development of Boston’s Latin Quarter.
