The Project will involve the rehabilitation, expansion and adaptive re-use of an existing five to eight story building - commonly known as the Goddard House - to residential use, and the construction of a new free-standing, multi-family residential building at the property's southern end fronting on South Huntington Avenue. Collectively, the Project will include 167 dwelling units, including 110 dwelling units in the renovated Goddard House building, and 57 dwelling units in the new building as well as open space improvements and associated parking for bicycles and cars. At approximately 163,000 total square feet, the project has been designed to be consistent with the guidelines set forth in the South Huntington Avenue Framework for Future Development Review, which was adopted by the BRA on May 16, 2013.

Please note that the purpose of this meeting is different than that of a traditional community meeting. As part of the development review process, Impact Advisory Group (IAG) members work closely with BRA staff to identify the impacts of a project and recommend appropriate community benefits to offset those impacts. IAG meetings prioritize discussion between the project proponent (i.e. the developer) and IAG members. If time remains at the end of the meeting, BRA staff will open the floor to other community members in attendance.

Although anyone is welcome to attend IAG meetings and listen to the discussion, traditional community meetings, which occur after the IAG has met, are the more appropriate forum for the broader public to provide feedback about a project.
