The BPDA is hosting an Impact Advisory Group (IAG) Meeting for the Longwood Place (305 Brookline Avenue) project located in the Longwood Medical Area. The purpose of the meeting is to discuss the proposed Planned Development Area (PDA) Development Plan for the redevelopment of the site, which is the existing Simmons University Residential Campus. The meeting will include a presentation followed by Q&A and discussion from the IAG members, as well as comments from the general public, time permitting.
The proposed PDA Development Plan consists of the redevelopment of the approximately 5.8 acre site located at 305 Brookline Avenue in the Longwood neighborhood of Boston with a phased mixed-use development consisting of approximately 1.75 million gross square feet of residential, office/laboratory, retail, restaurant, commercial, community space, and parking. The proposed PDA Area will be organized around approximately 2.3 acres of new public open space, and aims to reinvigorate a long, dormant, gated-off stretch of Brookline Avenue with retail, exterior and interior public open spaces, streetscape improvements, wider sidewalks and bike accessibility, and improved circulation for all modes of movement.

Please note that the purpose of this meeting is different from that of a traditional community meeting. As part of the development review process, Impact Advisory Group (IAG) members work closely with BPDA 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.
