The Jamaica Plain Neighborhood Development Corp. says it will soon file plans for 59 apartments aimed at senior citizens and 9 condos - all to be rented or sold as affordable - to replace the long abandoned Grove Hall Motor Mart property on Cheney Street.
In a letter of intent filed with the BPDA, the non-profit says the $31.3-million project, on a site that is currently "a blight on the neighborhood" that runs from Cheney to Schuyler Street, will include a four-story apartment building and three-story condo buildings.
Some 14 of the apartments will be rented to people making no more than 30% of the Boston area median income, another 12 to people making no more than 50% of that amount and the remaining 33 to people making no more than 60%. The condos will be split between units sold to people making up to 80% of the area median income and people making up to 100% of it.
