Meeting set for 64 Allandale project


A community meeting has been scheduled for Oct. 6 for the 64 Allandale St development. The proposal calls for building 16 new townhouses and creating four units at an existing house already on the property. The townhouses would be built in five different clusters. The townhouses would range from three-and-a-half to four-and-a-half stories. The project would have ample parking.

The project would abut Allandale Woods, which is an “urban wild” of more than 80 acres of City and private-owned land in Jamaica Plain and West Roxbury. Although there is concern over it’s impact on the Allandale woods, Susan Elsbree, a spokesperson for the developer Jacqueline Nunez, responded to those concerns saying that the project will rid the property of invasive plant species and be a benefit to Allandale Woods. Additionally, the plan is to employ Bioswales – vegetated planting to receive rainwater runoff and filter out pollutants before returning the water into the ground.  According to Elsbree, “Bioswales are more desirable than traditional grey storm water infrastructure because they also have additional benefits of providing wildlife habitat and aesthetic enhancement.”

The community meeting for the project will take place October 6th at 7pm at the West Roxbury Police Station. BRA spokesperson Nick Martin said in an email that the comment period has been extended to Oct. 13.
