Project Description
The proposed mixed-use development calls for the creation of attractive, energy-efficient commercial and residential buildings. Commercially, the project revives the legendary Doyle’s Café, guided by the award-winning Brassica Kitchen and Café team of Jamaica Plain, and expands the Washington Street storefront with a new 5,189 SF urban grocery market addition on the Washington and Gartland Street corner. Spanning a full Washington Street block, and easily accessed at grade, these commercial staples will provide immediate access to great food and a marketplace, restore street life, and become a true centerpiece to the ongoing redevelopment of the area dubbed JPROX. Restoration and improvement of Doyle’s bar and restaurant space include a new restaurant roof deck above. A band of space at the restaurant roof deck level containing service functions such as stairs, elevators, and restrooms, also provides an acoustic and visual buffer between the restaurant roof deck and neighboring residential buildings. Construction of (4) four additional floors of residential condominiums above the market, with four dwelling units per floor, completing Doyle’s building addition. At the southern corner of the site, is a proposed new four-story residential building containing (7) seven new dwelling units. Covered public parking to serve the restaurant and grocery market is provided at grade, within this building’s footprint.
