The public is invited to 74 Joy St. for the first Impact Advisory Group (IAG) meeting on the proposed residential redevelopment of the Hiriam J. Archer and Frank J. Donahue buildings on Temple St., Wednesday, April 20, from 6:30 to 8:30 p.m.
The project would transform two interconnected, six-story buildings at Temple and Derne streets, which were previously owned and occupied by Suffolk University, into a 75-unit condominium development with below-grade parking for 60 vehicles. The project would also increase the height of the building to 115 feet from its current 98 feet.
IAG members include Ania Camargo, James Ewing, Ben Starr, Ted Acworth, Jeanette Herrmann, Rob Whitney, Frank McGuire, Steve Turner and Erich Shigley, and according to the Boston Redevelopment Authority Web site, these groups advise the agency in identifying social and environmental impacts of large-scale projects and determining the appropriate mitigation from developers.
Public comments on the project can be sent via U.S. Mail until Monday May 2, to: Christopher Tracy, Boston Redevelopment Authority, One City Hall Square, 9th Floor, Boston, MA 02201, or by e-mail to [email protected]
