Kaplan Blog: Accommodating Expected Population Growth with Multi-Family Housing

Boston’s population is expected to soar to an estimated 700,000 residents by the year 2030, creating a critical need to increase housing. Developed by Luzern Associates and designed by Urbanica, Inc., an unused parcel next to the Forest Hills MBTA station was transformed into Tilia Jamaica Plain, a lively, eco-friendly urban living community.

Tilia Jamaica Plain takes its name from this summer-flowering tree also known as the linden. The 24-unit condo complex is less than a 10-minute walk from MBTA’s Orange Line Forest Hills Station and offers fantastic views of Greater Boston.

Tilia Jamaica Plain includes 24 residences among five buildings - two are three-stories high with six units each and three have four stories with four units each. The answer to the question of what’s new in Jamaica Plain is easily “everything.” This well-known urban neighborhood is an energetic mix of artists, musicians and professionals. But when the subject is real estate, the answer to “what’s new?” must be: Tilia Jamaica Plain.

What’s perhaps most striking about the newly built condo at Hyde Park Avenue — near the Forest Hills MBTA station — is what you can’t see or hear.

For example, step outside in front, as buses and trucks roar their way down the street, and you’ll have trouble carrying on a conversation over the noise. But step inside, and the place is nearly silent. Go upstairs to the rear-facing master bedroom, and the place is perfectly still.

The average prices for market-rate homes at the ends of the Orange Line vary pretty significantly and the difference serves as a clinic in why location matters in real estate, according to an analysis from real estate research site NeighborhoodX.

The average listing price around the Forest Hills terminus in the Jamaica Plain/Roslindale borderlands is $460 a square foot. That is culled from a range of $295 a foot to $524.
