Utile is working with The Brennan Group and John M. Corcoran Company on MetroMark Apartments (formerly known as The Commons at Forest Hills Station), a 283-unit mixed-use development located in Jamaica Plain. The mid-priced apartments include 35 studios, 108 one-bedroom units, 86 two-bedroom units, and 14 three-bedroom units. Forty affordable apartments will also be available. The 300,000 square foot building will house 5,000 square feet of ground-floor retail, and parking for 180 cars and 250 bicycles.
The transit-oriented development, conveniently located a short distance from the Forest Hills Orange Line MBTA stop, was formerly a brownfield site and home to a petroleum distribution facility for Hughes Oil Company. The development team spent years cleaning up the property and treating groundwater contamination.
