Fisher Ave. project could go to BRA board this month

The proposed development at 40 Fisher Ave. could be presented to the Boston Redevelopment Authority’s (BRA) board at its next meeting, which is July 16, according to BRA spokesperson Nick Martin. A community meeting was held on the project last month.

“The project has support from neighborhood groups, as well as elected officials, including City Councilor Josh Zakim and state Rep. Jeffrey Sanchez,” said Martin in an email to the Gazette. “The proponent even entered into an agreement with Mission Hill Neighborhood Housing Services to address concerns about limiting the number of undergraduate students that reside in his properties.”

Developer Jason Savage is proposing a 15-unit, 6-floor residential development for 40 Fisher Ave., according to documents filed with the Boston Redevelopment Authority (BRA).

The 22,039-square-foot project would have two 1-bedroom units, six 2-bedroom units and seven 3-bedroom units. The development would also have 10 parking spaces and 18 bicycle spots.

The project would need several variances, including for floor area ratio and insufficient front and rear yard.
