You don’t hear of many of the developments on offer that include a ski rental shop for a youth sports program at Jamaica Plain. But that’s part of an Amory Street proposal discussed at a public meeting on June 24.
The proposal includes two buildings located at 265-267 Amory Street. One would be a three-story commercial building that would include a state-of-the-art ski rental store with an outdoor activity warehouse to service Youth Enrichment Services (YES). YES’s mission is to provide “outdoor experiences and leadership opportunities that build confidence and prepare them for life’s challenges”. according to its website.
There will be an additional four-storey residential building containing nine new residential condominiums.
Parking will be at ground level and will be inside the building with 14n covered spaces that provide direct access to the main halls. All parking will be from a shared driveway with a cut border on site, which includes a bus stop to allow two buses to stop under a canopy in the YES building for covered loading and unloading ski equipment and participants.
There will also be 23 bicycle parking spaces on site.
This meeting will be held virtually on Thursday, June 24 from 6 p.m. to 8 p.m. Participants must register using this link, then attendees will receive a confirmation email with instructions for joining the meeting. An email will also be sent prior to the technical support meeting.
