Update: S. Huntington Draft Guidelines Out Early Next Week
The Boston Redevelopment Authority has been assessing the changing nature of South Huntington Avenue since last year.
A city planning agency is set to release a first draft of its future plans for the South Huntington Corridor.
The Boston Redevelopment Authority will publish the South Huntington Avenue Corridor Study’s draft guidelines early next week, according to the BRA spokeswoman Melina Schuler on Friday, March 22.
The guidelines come at the end of four months of public discussions about the area, which could see large scale development changes in the future, including a condominium build-out of the former Home for Little Wanderers site at 161 S. Huntington Ave.
“The objective of the South Huntington Avenue Corridor Study is to establish a corridor vision, which will inform a set of development guidelines to shape the future corridor feel and physical character,” the site says. “In recognition of multiple recent development projects, and the individualized manner in which each of these projects are reviewed, the corridor study seeks to create a comprehensive vision and unified set of guidelines for the review of projects, and the guidance of future growth.”
The corridor boundaries include the length of South Huntington Avenue at its intersection with Huntington Avenue and Perkins Street, respectively, the site says.
The fourth and final meeting regarding the area will take place April 2 at 6:30 p.m. in the Hennigan Elementary School cafeteria at 200 Heath St.
