Officials have made some revisions to a previously-proposed mixed-use development project on Washington Street. 

Changes were made to the original proposal after officials discovered hazardous chemicals on the site two years ago, according to the Jamaica Plain Gazette

The project currently calls for the lot at 3521-3529 Washington St., formerly used by the Flanagan & Seaton Motor Car Company, to include a multi-use, two -story building. The proposal also aims to have 27,000 square feet of retail space on the ground level ground level, with the upper levels of the four- to five-story building comprising as many as 92 residential units, according to the Gazette. 

By comparison, the original proposal called for a four-story storage facility and a 22,000-square-foot retail building with two stories, with housing of 42 residential units.

Last summer, the Stonybrook Neighborhood Association requested that the Boston Redevelopment Authority initiate a "Washington Street Corridor Plan," a move supported by The Jamaica Plain Neighborhood Council.
