209 Harvard Street

  • Open a public hearing on a new 2021 application for a Comprehensive Permit submitted to the Town of Brookline by 209 Harvard Street LLC, in accordance with M.G.L. c. 40B.

But for certain new retail and façade elements, the project is substantially similar to the subject of the 2020 application for a Comprehensive Permit submitted to the Town of Brookline by 209 Harvard Street LLC for 209 Harvard Street, Brookline, MA, which proposed to construct 44 housing units, including 36 studios; three, two bedroom units; and five, three bedroom units, with eleven of these units (25%) designated as affordable.  The Board will commence the hearing with a declaration regarding the Town’s position with respect to the 10% threshold percentage of affordable housing units as of the date of the new application, as well as a vote to incorporate all testimony and evidence from the 2020 application into the 2021 application.

  • Withdrawal of the 2020 application without prejudice, and proceed solely with the 2021 application.


  • Discussion of proposed revisions to the design.

Project plans and application are available on the Brookline Town website at:
