B'nai B'rith Housing New England is planning to launch a bid to develop a 1.7-acre parcel in Newtonville into housing and retail uses.
The 1.7 acre parcel, currently a 159-space parking lot, was deemed surplus by the city several years ago and re-zoned into a "Mixed Use 4" district last year.
The city wants to turn the parcel into a mixed-used development with both retail and housing in order to revitalize the Newtonville village center.
If successful, this will be the first mixed-use project for B'nai B'rith. The group had previously completed a 57-unit affordable housing development, 33 Comm, in Newton in 2008...more.
